Sojourner Truth

Sojourner Truth (born Isabella Baumfree c. 1797 – November 26, 1883) was an African American abolitionist and women’s right’s activist. She was born into slavery but escaped with her infant daughter in 1826. She is best known for her improvised speech on racial inequality, "Ain't I a Woman?", which she delivered in 1851 at the Ohio Women's Rights Convention. Her speech demanded equal human rights for all women as well as for all blacks. Truth took to the stage with a demanding and composed presence. The reform causes she sponsored were broad and varied, including prison reform, property rights and universal suffrage.
