Students explore the fascinating and criminally under-appreciated life of a progressive and brave female African American heroine of the 1800's. First they read a 2 page biography of her incredible life, then create a resume for her (template included). Students enjoy getting creative and doing this in groups. Finally, they read 2 versions of her famous "Ain't I a Woman?" speech -- one recorded shortly after the event, and the other appearing in print 25 years later, and making her sound very different. Students analyze and discuss why there would be 2 versions, which one should be trusted as more authentic (the first version), and why the later one became the famous version. (Hint - It makes her sound folksy and uneducated, creating a stereotype of a poor black woman who still knew enough to stand up for women, which may have endeared her to patronizing white audiences). This assignment can really generate discussion.
