BHM Series #6: Alfre Woodard Gives Life to Sojourner Truth

In honor of Black History Month, I’m reposting a previous series. A few years ago, (2015 to be exact!) I challenged myself to write 28 posts highlighting African-American History. This year I finally reached my goal!!! Check out my original post below which appeared on February 3, 2015. To see more posts in this series, click here.


If you are a fan (like me) of the new hit series How to Get Away with Murder, you’ll love this.
