Catherine Clinton and Shane W. Evans
List Price: $16.99 (Hardcover - History / African American Women Leaders - 2007)
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.
Ashay says, "Two of the greatest African American women in history met and shared their thoughts. Both leaders and believers of freedom. Knowing what they stood for, can you imagine their conversation ... well I guess you will have to read the book. Can you imagine their conversation. Great book for the classroom and library."
