Black History Month Postcard!

My friend on Facebook wanted to collect postcards of Black History, since February is Black History month, and since my city has a Black History monument, I decided to do a trade with him.  He sent me a love postcard in return of a monument in Battle Creek, Michigan. 

Battle Creek, Michigan is home for the world's largest sculpture honoring the thousands of southern slaves and fugitives who fled north during the 1840's and 1850's. Traveling by night hiding in barns and basement hide-a-ways by day, the movement was know as the Underground Railroad. Sojourner Truth was born as a slave in 1797. Speaking out for justice and human rights and especially for the abolition of slavery, she became the most famous African -American woman in the 19th century.
