Quotables

Here is some food for thought from some of our fore-sistas:

"No time to marry, no time to settle down; I'm a young woman, and I ain't done runnin' around."
Bessie Smith (1894-1937) Young Woman's Blues (1927)


"That . . . man . . . says women can't have as much rights as man, cause Christ wasn't a woman. Where did your Christ come from? . . . From God and a woman. Man had nothing to do with him."
Sojourner Truth (1797?-1883) speech at the Woman's Rights Convention in Akron, Ohio, 1851

"When I found I had crossed that line, [on her first escape from slavery, 1845] I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person. There was such a glory over everything."
Harriet Tubman (1820?-1913) to her biographer, Sarah H. Bradford, c. 1868
