Item description for When Harriet Met Sojourner by Catherine Clinton & Shane W. Evans...

Overview
Despite their overlapping work, Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman only met one time, and their conversation was not recorded, but this biography of two powerful civil rights leaders imagines what may have happened during their encounter in Boston in 1864.

Publishers Description

Two women with similar backgrounds. Both slaves; both fiercely independent. Both great, in different ways.

Harriet Tubman: brave pioneer who led her fellow slaves to freedom, larger than life . . . yearning to be free.

Sojourner Truth: strong woman who spoke up for African American rights, tall as a tree . . . yearning to be free.

One day in 1864, the lives of these two women came together. When Harriet Met Sojourner is a portrait of these two remarkable women, from their inauspicious beginnings to their pivotal roles in the battle for America's future.
