Sojourner Truth as Orator: Wit, Story, and Song

By Suzanne Pullon Fitch; Roseann M. Mandziuk | Go to book overview

Chronology of Major Speeches
The following chronology of speeches includes all of the speeches contained in Part II of this book in addition to some speeches, especially early ones, where no copy is known to exist at the present time. Sources which referred to these latter speeches are noted. Also included are the times Sojourner Truth toured various areas of the United States advocating certain causes. There are speeches in the collection that cover the general content of these tour speeches, but exact speeches are not easily available, if they are available at all. The sources that identify some of the lesser-known speeches, for which we have only notices or a few brief words of description, are cited following the title. As stated in the introduction, the titles are the closest the authors could come to the titles of the articles in which the speeches were reported but, admittedly, are the arbitrary choices of the authors. Despite these incomplete aspects, this chronology and collection of speeches is the only one to date that makes Sojourner Truth's speeches and reports of speeches available for easy reference.
