Born a slave, Sojourner Truth would spread the fires of freedom all the way to Congress. As a woman, she would boldly voice a link between the plight of slaves and that of American females. Facing a life without hope, she would receive a call from God to preach a deeply felt message--that people best show their love for God by their concern for others.
Wherever she appeared, the wise words and electrifying presence of Sojourner Truth brought audiences to their feet. The lengthy shadow cast by her near-six-foot frame and the challenge to injustice issued by her stinging speeches have secured her a place in American history--a place as a woman of courage and faith.
