Today is Sojourner Truth Day

We have yet another day to think about Sojourner Truth as Angola Mayor Dick Hickman on Sunday declared today Sojourner Truth Day in Angola. Pictured from Sunday’s unveiling event are, from left, descendants of Truth, Thomas Mcliechey and Burl Mcliechey of Battle Creek, Michigan, Truth reenactor Novella Nimmo, Cincinatti; and the Rev. Dr. LaVerne Hall, Seattle, whose stole is being wrapped around the statue for a photo. Sunday’s ceremony drew an estimated 350 to the Public Square in downtown Angola.
