When Harriet Met Sojourner This picture book with detailed text gives parallel biographies of two of the great pioneering fighters for civil rights and the abolition of slavery: Harrriet Tubman, and Sojourner Truth. It traces the key events and experiences that led to a lifelong dedication to the cause of freedom and imagines the meeting between these two legendary figures which took place in Boston in 1864 and the likely mutual appreciation of each other's achievements. The pictures incorporate motifs from the quilts which were important sources of information for those journeying in search of freedom.
