In celebration of Women's History Month, Justin Neisler has selected Ain't I a Woman, by Sojourner Truth. The speech was delivered in 1851 at the Women's Convention in Akron, Ohio. In his words, "Ain't I a Woman, calls attention to the need for equal rights for women of color. Her words are meant to bring unity to the suffrage and abolitionist movements."
