Performance of an Excerpt from “Walk Together Children” about Sojourner Truth

Vinie Burrows performs a piece about Sojourner Truth in her one-woman show “Walk Together Children” (created from literature of Black poets, writers and composers, representing the emotionally charged history of the African American experience).

One of her various original one-woman shows “Walk Together Children” was first performed in 1968.  When Burrows was performing in Amsterdam, she was moved by her ability to reach an audience whose first language is not English, and felt inspired to create her own material that is meaningful to her. Burrows has used her original one-woman shows to shed light on the African American experience and plight of women—both equally essential to her identity as an artist.
