Have you ever wondered what it would be like to speak with a woman who changed America?

For one night, you can have that chance at the Sojourner Foundation’s 26th Annual “Conversations With… Women Who Read Between The Lines” event.

On Wednesday, March 27, volunteer actors will take on the roles of women throughout our nation’s history, including the first African American woman to publish a book, the first female cryptographer and human rights pioneer Sojourner Truth.

The Sojourner Foundation’s mission is to provide support and grants to local organizations improving the lives of girls and women.

In addition to the performers, the foundation’s event features grant awards, a silent auction and a buffet. Tickets for the event, which will be held at the Roostertail Catering Club in Detroit at 5:30pm, cost $65 and must be purchased in advance.

Also, on April 10, join the foundation at the Women’s Funding Network conference to learn more about “New Models for Giving: Impact and Collaboration.”

To learn more about the Sojourner Foundation events, watch “Street Beat” this Sunday at 11am on CW50!
