That's one hell of a dedication! I look forward to reading the rest of the book! @FeministBookClub

I think Sojourner Truth is one of the post powerful and amazing woman to ever walk the earth. Her tenacity is just mind blowing. Ain't I A Woman I have read so many times in so many different contexts and studied it from history classes to wgss classes and every time it's back to the same conclusion that it was one of the greatest speeches ever given. I did hear a rumor from an AAS professor that she didn't actually give that speech though.
“Clara listened to speech after speech. “
This is another book I would definitely use in my classroom. I would read it to my students to let them know it is okay to stand up for what you believe in and it is okay to be different and out there. It is a good book to show the kids to believe in themselves to stand up for their rights and to do the best thing.
This is a biography book. It is about an immigrant, Clara. When she arrived in America, she didn't speak any English, and she didn't know women had to work and how they traded an education for labor. She worked by day (shirtwaist factory) and studied at night time. She didn't accept that women were treated unfairly so she made a difference and stood up for what she believed in. The author's note has sources and facts to where she wrote the book.
