Memorial Statue

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.

If you would like to take a self-guided walking tour of Sojourner’s house and historic sites from her time in Florence, you can download this pdf African-American Heritage Trail map. You can also view a video playlist of our walking tour videos.

The Sojourner Truth Memorial Committee is a 501(c)3 organization ("Committee for Northampton, Inc"); EIN 22-3529750.
