How did Sojourner Truth rescue and reunite with her son after he’d been sold away from her?  How did Harriet Tubman earn money to buy the property that is now a national historic landmark?  How did they do that?  And, what do their abilities to overcome their extreme challenges tell us about our own potential? Get to know these fascinating foremothers—up close and personal—with these on-location trips:

THE SISTER DAYS MOTHER/DAUGHTER* BOOK CLUB

​​​JUNE 22:

MAKE PILGRIMAGE TO HARRIET TUBMAN'S HOME AND GRAVESITE  
On June 22, 1896, Harriet Tubman—the "greatest Underground Railroad conductor of them all" and the first woman to lead American troops in battle—wrestled racism, sexism, and financial hardship to purchase the twenty-five-acre site now preserved as a national historic landmark. Join us in Auburn, New York for the 125th anniversary of that achievement.  Membership includes one “ticket” to participate virtually or socially-distanced onsite.

MOTHER’S DAY “BOUQUET”
Delivered to you on Mother’s Day: a member’s-only audiobook, "Janus Adams Reads Sister Days."  This special arrangement of a dozen inspirational messages includes a special tribute to the power of sisterlove NOT in the book. 
"This is so timely.  We need a dream state, now.  We need the space to be able to stretch, think, dream, and grow."  
—Giselle Sille, Researcher and Reader
6 WEEKLY MENTAL FEASTS
Did you know? The first known book club was founded by African American women in 1831.  Calling their gatherings "mental feasts," they blazed trails for literature and leadership.  Our virtual "mental feasts” meet Saturdays at 12:00 Noon ET: May 15th through June 19th, Juneteenth.  On the menu: good company, great conversations about the week’s readings, and a chance for you to be a special guest co-host!

JUNE 1:

TOUR SOJOURNER TRUTH'S UPSTATE NEW YORK 
On June 1, 1843, Isabella Baumfree was having one of her serious "talks with God."  Together, they’d planned her walk to freedom and her son’s rescue.  Now, they decided her life’s mission: to travel (sojourn) speaking truth against the evils of slavery; and chose her new name: Sojourner Truth; changing her life and a sense of self for Black women.  Go to the sites of her story on this historic anniversary day. Membership includes one “ticket” to join us virtually or socially-distanced onsite.      

For six weeks, May 10 through June 22, 2021, connect with women virtually everywhere to read and discuss my book, Sister Days: 365 Inspired Moments in African American Women’s History. Share your thoughts.  Ask questions. Go behind-the-scenes on my travels to research and collect the remarkable little-known stories in this “book of life"—the lives of Black women across the globe over more than five centuries.
