Cheri Moon - Ain't I A Woman (Freaktone) Freaktone, House
FREAKTONE - HOUSE - SOULSHAKER REMIXES
Billboard #1 producers Soulshaker remix Cheri Moon's new single "Ain't I A Woman". Singer and songwriter Cheri Moon recently released the music video for “Ain’t I A Woman,” a song inspired by Sojourner Truth, the former slave who went on to galvanize generations of women.
In the video, directed by Sophie Dia Pegrum, Cheri first appears in the role of Sojourner Truth, and then as a doctor, businesswoman, mother, astronaut, etc. The visual significance is well- defined: WOMAN CAN DO ANYTHING.
Powerful and infectious, “Ain’t I A Woman” rides a potent, rumbling rhythm topped by gleaming colors and soaring textures as Cheri’s evocative voice infuses the lyrics with surging passion. Cheri’s compassion, independence, and strength motivated her to start SNOOKNUK, her children’s music project, created to inspire and encourage children to immerse themselves in the magic of life and all it has to offer.

"Ain't I A Woman?" was a speech, delivered extemporaneously, by Sojourner Truth (1797-1883), born into slavery in New York State. Some time after gaining her freedom in 1827, she became a well known anti-slavery speaker. Her speech was delivered at the Women's Convention in Akron, Ohio, in 1851, and did not originally have a title.
The speech was briefly reported in two contemporary newspapers, and a transcript of the speech was published in the Anti-Slavery Bugle on June 21, 1851. It received wider publicity in 1863 during the American Civil War when Frances Dana Barker Gage published a different version, one which became known as Ain't I a Woman? because of its oft-repeated question. This later, better known and more widely available version was the one commonly referenced in popular culture and, until historian Nell Irvin Painter's 1997 biography of Truth, by historians as well.
