Genealogy Blogging Beat – Friday, 29 May 2015

29 May 1851. During the Women’s Rights Convention held at Akron, OH, from May 28 to May 29, 1851, former slave Sojourner Truth delivered an impassioned speech that is now titled after its common refrain: “I have ploughed, and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! And ain’t I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man— when I could get it— and bear the lash as well! And ain’t I a woman? And when I cried out with my mother’s grief, none but Jesus heard me. And ain’t I a woman?”
