Sojourner Truth Exhibition at Berkeley Art Museum



The Berkeley Art Museum will be mounting an exhibition, Sojourner Truth, Photography, and the Fight Against Slavery, based on the materials used by Darcy Grimaldo Grigsby for her book, Enduring Truths: Sojourner's Shadows and Substance (University of Chicago Press, 2015). The exhibition is scheduled to run from July 27 to October 23, 2016; see the UC Berkeley press release for more information about it and a good brief review of the exhibition, "How Sojourner Truth Used Photography to Help End Slavery" is at Smithsonian.com; it's included in the August 12th KQED The Do List (starting at 3:04).
