Akron History Hike: Walk with Sojourner Truth

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┬áCounty Historical Society will invite participants to sites exploring Akron’s social justice heritage.┬áThe 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.
