Sojourner Truth
"Ain't I a woman?"
Sojourner Truth was born a New York slave in 1797 on the plantation of Colonel Hardenbergh. Her real name was Isabelle VanWagener (some references use the name Isabelle Baumfree). She was freed by a new New York law which proclaimed that all slaves twenty-eight years of age and over were to be freed. Isabelle, in her later life, thought she received messages from God. That was how she got her new name, Sojourner Truth. She joined the Anti-Slavery Society and became an abolitionist lecturer and a speaker for women's rights both black and white. One speech for which she became well known for, was called "Ain't I a Woman?". Olive Gilbert, a close friend of Sojourner Truth, wrote a biography of her life, "A Narrative of Sojourner Truth: a Northern Slave". The biography helped her earn money for her trips. She also sold postcards with her picture and her motto below which said, "We Sell the Shadow to Support the Substance". After the Civil War, she gave speeches for equal rights. On November 26, 1883 Sojourner Truth died. Sojourner Truth was different from what was considered to be normal at that time and place. Her determination to help her people was fearless and confident. Truth never gave up when she was being over looked during her speeches. She would always discover some way to get attention from the audience. Truth took many risks to achieve her goal of releasing the blacks. For example she was threatened to be murdered by a few Southerners for many different reasons but Truth stood tall and firm. Although some people said she would never approach her goal of freeing her people, she did. To many people Sojourner Truth was a great leader. Many lives including the Northerners', Southerners', and blacks', and whites', were changed because of her influence. Her daring personality, strong will, and courage helped her make a great and lasting difference in the United States of America.

By: Rella W. Hawkins
Black History term paper 1970 I've selected a term paper written in 1970 to celebrate Black History month in this year 2000. My inspiration came from the book, "JOURNEY TOWARD FREEDOM, The Story of Sojourner Truth" by Jacqueline Bernard. This quote appears on the back cover by, FRIENDS JOURNAL: "This may be worth reading for its reminder that occasionally an indomitable human spirit does triumph over seemingly insuperable obstacles." Sojourner Truth was a freed slave in the early 1800s who then worked to free many slaves. Some of her other accomplishments were: she saw that 60,000 freed Southern slaves had land in Kansas, was a delegate for the 13th Women's Rights Convention from Michigan and voted and campaigned for General Grant. She was often surrounded by youth who wanted to hear about her spiritual /religious experiences and hear her sing to them, plus many other experiences noted in this article. My assignment was to create an attempt to link her to some present day study to understand what or how such accomplishments could come about for a black woman from the very early 1800's who's many lives were touched by her willingness to speak on and seek out Freedom.

Sojourner Truth
This page is edited by Heidi Jacobs Sojourner Truth (c. 1797-1883) Born into slavery around 1797, Sojourner Truth is often referred to as one of the most effective and powerful speech makers of her time. Most of what we know of her comes from her speeches (transcribed by others) and Narrative of Sojourner Truth (1850) the autobiography which she dictated and sold. Sojourner Truth in 1843 listened to what she felt was a summons of God which instructed her to preach. Born Isabella Baumfree, she changed her name to Sojourner Truth to reflect her mission of travelling to show people their sins and telling them what is true. Addressing the intersections of both race and gender in nineteenth-century American culture, Sojourner Truth is a significant voice in discussions of slavery and suffrage.

Sojourner Truth (1797 - 1883)
Sojourner Truth was an abolitionist and feminist who, after being freed as a slave, traveled the United States speaking at various conventions for the equality of blacks and women. Her most famous speech was entitled "Ain't I a Woman?" and it was delivered at the Women's Rights Convention in Akron, Ohio. Truth displayed unparalleled courage in the face of males who sneered and hissed while she spoke on stage. She discarded her slave name when she finally gained her liberty and replaced it with Sojourner. She did this because sojourn meant "to dwell temporarily" (which she thought an apt description of one's tenure in this life), and she chose Truth because that was the message she intended to carry to the world. She told of the horrible treatment she and her family endured at the hands of their owners, including many rapes and assaults. Sojourner came to believe that the liberation of blacks and that of women were closely related, and her antislavery lectures became infused with arguments for women's rights. In 1850 she published her autobiography and, with the proceeds from the book, was able to support herself. During the Civil War she visited and spoke with Union troops; after the war she spent her time finding jobs for and helping newly freed slaves.

Sojourner Truth Sojourner Truth began her life as a slave and ended it as a heroine. Sojourner Truth was probably born about 1797. Her real name was Isabella, but her family called her Belle. Her mother's name was Mau-Mau Bett and her father's name was Baumfree. That was low Dutch for tree. She was one of ten siblings. Three of her siblings were named: Peter, Michael, and Nancy. Belle and peter were the only remaining children out of ten. Her first home was a grim,dark cellar of a stately limestone house on the plantation of Charles Hardenbergh. She lived eighty miles North of New York City. She was one out twelve slaves. The first language she learned was low Dutch. In 1806, Belle was sold to John Neely from Twaalfskill,New York. When she misunderstood a command in English (which she didn't understand at the time) she was beaten until she bled. Later on she was sold again for $300.00 to a man named John J. Dumont from New Paltz Landing. The master's daughter once stuck up for her when another slave was playing a dirty trick. Belle's mother died of a stroke in the cellar that Belle grew up in and that she had lived in for so many years. To get to her mother's funeral Belle had to twelve miles. At the funeral Belle saw her father and Peter who still belonged to the Hardenberghs. During her earlier years at the Dumonts plantation, whenever she had the time to get away, (she had very little free time), she would go to a hideout. No one knew where she went.

20. Sojourner Truth - African American Historical Figure
A brief look at some of the lesserknown details of Truth's life.
Sojourner Truth It is rarely discussed, but Sojourner Truth fought for the desegregation of public transportation in Washington, DC during the Civil War. She refused to face the indignities of Jim Crow segregation on street cars and had the Jim Crow car removed from the Washington D. C. system. Sojourner Truth brought a local street to a standstill when a driver refused her passage. With the support of the crowd she forced the driver to carry her. During her legendary life, she challenged injustice wherever she saw it. She was an abolitionist, women's rights activist and preacher.
Born into slavery (as Isabella Baumfree) in upstate New York, Sojourner Truth obtained her freedom and moved to New York City. There she began to work with organizations designed to assist women. She later became a traveling preacher and quickly developed a reputation as a powerful speaker. A turning point in her life occurred when she visited the Northhampton Association in Massachusetts. The members of this association included many of the leading abolitionists and women's rights activists of her time. Among these people Sojourner Truth discussed issues of the day and as a result of these discussions became one of the first people in the country to link the oppression of black slaves with the oppression of women.
