After skipping a week, Pandemic Books is back with a very short run of the life story of Sojourner Truth. She is probably best known to many people for her speech on feminism, usually titled “Ain’t I a Woman?” However, she was a lifelong activist for freedom and equality, with many accomplishments. Born into slavery around 1797 in New York, she escaped from bondage in 1826, later saying “I did not run off, for I thought that wicked, but I walked off, believing that to be all right.” Her lawsuit to recover her son from a slaver in Alabama was the first of many battles following her self-emancipation.
This week, we’re going to start doing things differently with these books. Instead of collecting money and shipping out books and then making a donation to a local organization, we would like people who are interested in a copy of this book to donate a minimum of $10 directly to the Hogan’s Alley Society. The first six people who can write to us at email@example.com showing that they have made a donation can pick up a copy of this book. Sadly, this means no more out-of-town shipping for now.
Softcover, 5.5×7.5″, 320 pages.
