Akron History Hike: Walk with Sojourner Truth
May 28 @ 11:30 am
This new series of “history hikes” will explore the Akron area’s reform and Progressive Era past. Beginning in April 2019 and continuing through October, the Summit County Historical Society will invite participants to sites exploring Akron’s social justice heritage. The program starts at Wesley Temple AME Zion Church for a reenactment of Sojourner Truth’s “Ain’t I a Woman” speech. The hike will take attendees to the Sojourner Truth Building (now the United Way), to discuss the 1851 women’s rights convention where the speech was first given.
