a new American opera about Sojourner Truth with The Narrative of Sojourner Truth
by Linda McInerney, Paula Kimper, Talaya Delaney, Matt McInerney
About the Book
Composed by Paula M. Kimper, with a libretto by Talaya Delaney, conceived and developed by Linda McInerney, TRUTH illuminates the life and legacy of Sojourner Truth, a complicated, brilliant woman who, though illiterate, was a relentless and articulate champion of those deprived of justice and freedom. The score is accessible and down-to-earth, much of the music derived from folk themes and spirituals, and many of the words Sojourner’s own. Accompanied by The Narrative of Sojourner Truth.
