Now Old Sojourner Has Got A Little More To Say

This is an entry from India Burton who is playing Sojourner Truth in our upcoming production of A Woman Called Truth. The show is presented by First Grace United Church of Christ and plays January 13, 14, 15 at 8 pm.

Working with the cast and crew of A Woman Called Truth has been both tedious and enlightening. The challenge of portraying one of the foremost women and slaves in history is intimidating.

During this process I have been tested and challenged by the director, Heather Beyer, to go beyond my comfort zone and attempt to understand the life and experiences of a slave.

The weight of this character and her impact on the lineage of African American history profoundly moves me and my fellow cast members.  I am honored to have this experience and honored to share it with so many dedicated actors and directors.
