The Sojourner Truth Legacy Project (STLP) began in 2008, and under the leadership of the former Chair Congresswoman Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, the forum has focused on bringing together women across generations to address issues such as jobs, health care, and the advancement of women in the business and government sectors. The Sojourner Truth Legacy Project aims to build a dynamic, nationwide, inter-generational network of African American and multicultural women committed to harnessing the power of women around issues important to their lives. The project is now chaired by Congresswoman Yvette Clarke.
This annual reception serves as a culminating event to STLP efforts for the past year. It brings together the women of the CBC as well as other current and emerging women leaders in various sectors to network and celebrate black women leadership. Each year the women of the CBC select one to two individuals who have made outstanding accomplishments to receive the “Woman of the Year” award in honor of trailblazer Sojourner Truth.
