In the course of presenting a traveling one-woman show portraying the 19th-century black woman activist and spiritualist Sojourner Truth, Pennington (African-American studies, communications, U. of Kansas) detected striking parallels between's Truth's story of embarking on a spiritual journey in middle age and that of the six professional black women who had quit their jobs whom she had interviewed in the mid-1990s. The author presents her methodology, the women's narratives, and a grounded-theory analysis of their stories about leaving the workplace. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
