Sojourners for Truth and Justice
Founded in 1951, Sojourners for Truth and Justice was a radical civil-rights organization inspired by the intersectional activism of Sojourner Truth. Members of the organization included Shirley DuBois, Claudia Jones, Charlotta Bass, and Lorraine Hansberry. In the fall of 1951, the Sojourners for Truth and Justice wrote A Call to Negro Women to mobilize Black women to protest racism and sexism. The result was that more than 132 Black women journeyed to Washington, D.C. between September 29 and October 1, 1951, for a program called Sojourn for Truth and Justice, where they advocated for justice, safety, and freedom.
