Sutton’s presentation is titled “Sojourner Truth in the context of the Second Great Awakening and the ferment of American Reform”.

On Thursday, the Sojourner Truth Exhibit opens at the newly opened Pleasant Lake History Museum. Truth was believed to have spent a significant amount of time in Pleasant Lake. The exhibit will be open from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
