We’re the Organization That Brought Truth to the Capitol

In 2006, President George W. Bush signed into law the authority for the Sojourner Truth bust sculpture to be donated by the National Congress of Black Women, Inc. on Capitol Hill.

The bust was unveiled on April 28, 2009 in Emancipation Hall in Washington, D.C.  The sculpture was created by artist Artis Lane, a resident of California and a member of NCBW Los Angeles. In this video, NCBW National President Dr. E. Faye Williams speaks about the bust and its significance.
