PM Quote of the Day — Sojourner Truth

Truth is powerful and it prevails.

Not much to say about this quote, other than to point you more about Sojourner Truth (here and here) and her most famous speech (“Ain’t I A Woman” here).   I had not realized that she had been jeered and heckled so severely — by attendees of a Women’s Rights Convention — before giving that 1851 speech.  Of course, by the end, the audience had been transformed.

To say the least, the speech manifests the power of plain speaking.
