In honor of Black History Month, the Oxnard Public Library is proud to host Celena Bostic Perry, who researched and created a lecture performance about the life of Sojourner Truth, an African American woman born into slavery in 1797. Perry will portray Sojourner Truth and give the audience an introduction to her fascinating and inspiring story as an abolitionist and women’s rights activist. The event is free and is scheduled for Saturday, February 25, at the Main Downtown Library, Meeting Room B, 251 South A Street, at 3:30 PM.
After seeing the performance, the executive director of The Sojourner Truth Institute in Michigan named Perry an official Ambassador of Truth, an honor usually bestowed upon those who have been trained at the Institute.
