The tour begins at the Sojourner Truth Memorial Statue at the corner of Park and Pine Streets. Just a few doors down from her house at 35 Park Street the statue was dedicated in 2002 after ten years of organizing and fundraising. Every Sunday of Memorial Day weekend anti-racism and social justice advocates gather to celebrate Truth’s abiding inspiration and recognize the work of young activists of high school age.
