    She is such a good speaker

    I read one of Sojourners speeches at a womens convention (Aint I a Woman, is what its called if u want to read it) and I love how she speaks so freely in a time when it was thought America was equal, but it was only equal for certain people, and she wasn't one of them. I'm glad I get to live in a society where there are equal rights for men and women of different races. =>

    The Truth about Slavery

    Through the pain filled story on these pages we learn of birth in captivity, being sold, sold again, sold yet again, and sold once again; and each time into sexually and physically abusive families -- New York families. The loss of her children, the murder of her husband only steele Sojourner to speak out against slavery across the Nation, to seek restitution for her people, to unite Abolitionists against slavery. She is, at times, in the company of and providing guidance to Frederick Douglass and President U.S. Grant. A legendary witness to American history.

    The Narrative of Sojourner Truth is a very informative collectio

    The Narrative of Sojourner Truth is a very informative collection of different stories and happenings in the life of Sojourner Truth. The book itself has a lot of new information on Truth that not everyone knows from just background knowledge. If you like biographies and learning something about slavery and women's rights then you will like this book. Honestly, I didn't like the read very much, but these topics are not my area of interest.
