Abstract

At many levels of the educational system, teachers use Sojourner Truth's speech "Ain't I a Woman" as a powerful example of women's rhetoric. This article examines the politics of privileging one version of the speech. The author makes a call to teachers to teach multiple versions and talk about the politics of transcription, gender, and race.
