I hate being a slave.
Why she is important
Truth is powerful and it prevails.
Sojourner Truth was a slave that was born in 1797. Her real name was Isabella Baumfree, but she changed her name to Sojourner Truth.
Sojourner Truth escaped slavery with her infant child, leaving other kids behind, and in 1846 she becomes an Abolitionist and ends up getting an autobiography even though she can't read or write, but she can speak english.
Sojourner Truth is a very important person, and that's because of her work. She worked against slavery. When she was born she was a slave, but she lived in New York, when slavery was banned. She was also famous for speaking, and one of her speeches in particular was "Ain't I a woman."
