Happy African-American History Month.
Today we continue our exploration of the USCIS History and Government questions and African American History. Today we will talk about USCIS 100:77. What did Susan B. Anthony do?*.
We will first read about Q71 from the USCIS M638 quick civics lesson. Then we will learn about Susan B. Anthony's friend, Sojourner Truth, who worked with Susan B. Anthony against slavery and for equal treatment of women. Sojourner Truth was an escaped slave who sued her former master because he tried to sell Sojourner's son into slavery. Then we will listen to a short reading from Sojourner Truth's speech: “Ain't I a Woman?” Let's get started!
