Interpretation of Sojourner Truth by Charmaine Crowell

October 8, 2017 at 2:00PM - 3:30PM

Bon Air Christian Church, 2071 Buford Rd.

Local actress and educator Charmain Crowell joins us for her performance of Sojourner Truth the courageous abolitionist and women's rights activist. Her interpretation of Harriet Tubman was well attended, and we expect this to be an excellent opportunity to engage in living history again. Ms. Crowell even keeps character through Q & A! 

Crowell lives here in Chesterfield County. She is an actress, storyteller, and living history interpreter. She will provide a 40-min. living history interpretation of Sojourner Truth, the famous abolitionist and women's rights activist. She has acted on stage and in film, playing a servant in the Spielberg movie "Lincoln," a free slave woman in "Killing Lincoln," and a laundry servant in the AMC television series "Turn." She has performed with the Valentine Museum and other museums, theaters, libraries, schools, churches, colleges and universities across the nation.
