Sojourner Truth Earrings
These handmade sterling silver domed disc earrings, for pierced ears, are stamped with words attributed to Sojourner Truth: Truth is powerful and it prevails. The discs are 1" in diameter with a drop length of 1-1/2". The ear wires are hand-formed from sterling silver wire. The artist also lightly stamped a L for left and R for right on the back of each earring so, as she explains, “you don't have to stand in front of a mirror and figure out which one goes on each ear.” Artist Amy Volchok makes these earrings exclusively for The Reader’s Catalog.
Sojourner Truth (1797-1883)
Sojourner Truth, born Isabella Bomfree, escaped enslavement at the age of 30. By the end of her life she was regarded as one of the nineteenth century’s most outspoken advocates for abolition and women’s rights. She is best known for her 1851 extemporaneous speech, “Ain't I a Woman,” which challenged prevailing notions of racial and gender inferiority and inequality. Her life before, during, and after the Civil War, and until her death, was devoted to the cause of justice.
