Meet the Author

Isabella Baumfree (c.1797-1883) was known as Sojourner Truth after 1843. She was an African-American former slave, abolitionist, public speaker, and women's rights advocate. Born in New York to Dutch-speaking owners, Truth spoke only Dutch in her formative years. She remained a slave until 1826, when she escaped with her infant daughter; she was eventually purchased from her owner for $20, and became free on July 4, 1827 with the rest of New York's slaves. In 1843, she began a career of preaching and public speaking in favor of pacifism, abolitionism, and women's rights, eventually becoming one of the best-known African-American members of the Abolition movement. Her 1851 speech "Ain't I a Woman?" is regarded as one of the most significant speeches of the early women's rights movement.
