"Where did your Christ come from?"

I rediscovered this video today and thought I'd share just because it moves me every single time I watch it. We're doing a poetry unit in Lit and I'm using the poem that makes up the majority of Sojourner Truths "Ain't I a Woman?" speech. This one's read by Alice Walker--who I also love love love--and I just find it unbelievably beautiful and clever and honest and telling.

And Sojourner Truth gave this speech in 1851.
