I was roaming around Battle Creek on a quiet Saturday morning and I saw this colorful and profound mural on the back of a building. Hand painted murals have a way of brightening up some rather dull spaces, and I love finding them in unexpected places. Not only is this a beautiful mural, but it also made me learn something new. I was thinking the woman in the mural was Harriet Tubman, but like many things I think, I was incorrect. The woman depicted in the mural is Sojourner Truth who was an escaped slave and women’s rights activist who died at the age of 86 in her Battle Creek home.
