Sojourner Truth

Digital Illustration, 2019

Sojourner was an African American evangelist, abolitionist, women’s rights activist

and author who lived a miserable life as a slave, serving several masters throughout

New York before escaping to freedom in 1826. She fought for equal rights for all,

which is highlighted in her stirring “Ain’t I a Woman?” speech, delivered 
at a women’s convention in Ohio in 1851. 


She continued her crusade for the rest of her life, earning an audience with President Abraham Lincoln and becoming one of the world’s best-known human rights crusaders.
