Narrative of Sojourner Truth by Sojourner Truth
She was sold for $100 but grew beyond her place in society to demand rights for women as well as African Americans. This is her story. This is her voice.
She is the passionate woman on the Smithsonian Institution’s list of “100 Most Significant Americans.” She was the first black woman to win a case against a white man to regain her son. She was important enough in her own time to meet Abraham Lincoln.
