Interview: Natasha Sistrunk Robinson Talks ‘A Sojourner’s Truth: Choosing Freedom and Courage in a Divided World’

Editor’s note: This article has been updated.

Natasha Sistrunk Robinson, speaker, mentor, and leadership consultant, talks with Faithfully Magazine about her latest book, A Sojourner’s Truth: Choosing Freedom and Courage in a Divided World.

Sistrunk Robinson’s previous books include Mentor for Life: Finding Purpose through Intentional Discipleship and the Hope for Us: Knowing God through the Nicene Creed Bible study. In addition to chairing the Leadership LINKS, Inc. nonprofit, she hosts the “A Sojourner’s Truth: Conversations for a Changing Culture” podcast.

Publisher IVP Books describes A Sojourner’s Truth as “an African-American girl’s journey from South Carolina to the United States Naval Academy, and then to her calling as an international speaker, mentor, and thought-leader.” In the following interview, Sistrunk Robinson discusses themes from the book, including how women rescued Moses, cultural blind spots, and how she learned to truly live free. The interview has been edited and condensed for clarity.

Why this book, and why now?

Because God said so. And I don’t say that lightly. I was working on another book project, but this book was the one that started keeping me up at night.

There was a lot that was happening in our culture and our country—particularly regarding the abuse of Black lives. So many Black people were being shot by the state—or by anybody. These were just regular people doing regular things, trying to live their lives and getting shot for no reason.
