It relays the remarkable life of Sojourner Truth, the horrible labors she endured as a slave and her endless spirit for helping others.

At 9:30: Children ages 3-12 will meet with Joanne. They will create a memorial for people lynched in Virginia from 1880 to 1926. Children will fill jars with sand and write the names of the victims on them. The jars will be placed outside with a sign explaining the memorial.
At 11:15: In Spirit Play (3-7 year olds) with Joanne, children will hear the story, “Aunt Harriet’s Underground Railroad in the Sky,” and play the Underground Railroad Quilt Code Board Game.
In UUs Make a Difference (8-11 year olds) with Nan Procyson, children will learn about Joseph Jordan, the first African American to be ordained by the Universalists. He founded the church in Norfolk in 1887.
