Publisher Comments:

This inspiring memoir, first published in 1850, recounts the struggles of a distinguished African-American abolitionist and champion of women's rights. Sojourner Truth tells of her life in slavery, her self-liberation, and her travels across America in pursuit of racial and sexual equality. Essential reading for students of American history.

Synopsis:

First published in 1850, this inspiring memoir by the famous African-American abolitionist and champion of women's rights tells of her life in slavery, her self-liberation, and her tireless campaign for racial and sexual equality.

Synopsis:

One of the most important documents of slavery ever written, this landmark in the literature of African-American women is the eloquent autobiography of a woman who became a pioneer in the struggles for racial and sexual equality. The spiritual, inspiring narrative bears witness to Sojourner Truth's 30 years as a slave in upstate New York.
