is scheduled to unveil the Sojourner Truth Memorial at the United States Capitol building in Washington, DC on April 28. We are pleased to note that she is not only awesome, but did I mention A.W.E.S.O.M.E. The Couture Agency worked with the National Congress of Black Women (NCBW, Inc.) in the early stages of trying to get a bill passed through the US Congress to add Sojourner to the United States Capitol. When the bill was finally passed in 2006, the Celebration of Truth campaign began.
