On this site on May 29, 1851, Sojourner Truth, a former slave, gave her world famous "And Ain't I a Woman?" speech, recalling the hardships she had endured. Active in both the abolitionist and women's rights movements, she electrified an audience of women and men who had come to the Universalist Stone Church for a two-day women's rights convention.
