AUGUSTA JR. PLAYERS PRESENT A WOMAN CALLED TRUTH

Director: Roy Lewis 
Musical Director: Celena Smith 

A WOMAN CALLED TRUTH tells story of Sojourner Truth, from her early years in the late 1700s, when she was known as Isabelle Hardenburgh, to her later years spent speaking out against slavery and poverty.  After her master dies, Sojourner is auctioned off but is eventually freed in 1827.  After freedom comes, she wants to see her son Peter, but she soon discovers he has been sold to an owner down south. As she attempts to rescue her son from slavery, she is faced with many challenges. Sojourner’s journey shows the ways in which strength and persistence pay off.
