SHOW TRANSCRIPT:

Hey, this Lori Lakin Hutcherson, founder and editor in chief of goodblacknews.org, here to share with you a daily drop of Good Black News for Thursday, March 10th, 2022, based on the “A Year of Good Black News Page-A-Day Calendar” published by Workman Publishing.

Today we offer a quote from Sojourner Truth, the first Black woman in America to obtain national fame for her activism and protesting, and who was featured in our March 2nd Daily Drop. Here’s the quote:

“That…man…says women can’t have as much rights as man, ‘cause Christ wasn’t a woman. Where did your Christ come from? From God and a woman. Man had nothing to do with him.”

This quote from the formerly enslaved Truth comes from a speech she gave in 1851 at a women’s rights convention.

To learn more about Truth, I’ll include the link to our March 2nd Daily Drop, as it contains more details on her life and work, as well as providing links to sources for further exploration and research. Enjoy.
