When Harriet Met Sojourner (Library Binding)
Two women with similar backgrounds. Both slaves; both fiercely independent. Both great, in different ways.
Harriet Tubman: brave pioneer who led her fellow slaves to freedom, larger than life . . . yearning to be free.
Sojourner Truth: strong woman who spoke up for African American rights, tall as a tree . . . yearning to be free.
One day in 1864, the lives of these two women came together. When Harriet Met Sojourner is a portrait of these two remarkable women, from their inauspicious beginnings to their pivotal roles in the battle for America's future.
“The compelling parallel narratives of two women ‘joined by a kinship of spirit’ still add up to a stirring history.”
“Clinton and Evans deliver gripping parallel portraits of Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth.”
