Black History Month quote of the day: Sojourner Truth

“Our nerves and sinews, our tears and blood have been sacrificed on the altar of this nation’s avarice. Our unpaid labor has been a stepping-stone to its financial success. Some of its dividends must surely be ours.” Narrative of Sojourner Truth [1875]. Book of Life
