Sojourner Truth (/soʊˈdʒɜːrnər ˈtruːθ/; born Isabella Baumfree; c. 1797 – November 26, 1883) was an African-American abolitionist and women's rights activist.

Sojourner Truth (/soʊˈdʒɜːrnər ˈtruːθ/; born Isabella Baumfree; c. Truth was born into slavery in Swartekill, Ulster County, New York, but escaped with her infant daughter to freedom in 1826. After going to court to recover her son in 1828, she became the first black woman to win such a case against a white man.

THE following is the unpretending narrative of the life of a remarkable and meritorious woman–a life which has been checkered by strange vicissitudes, severe hardships, and singular adventures. Born a slave, and held in that brutal condition until the entire abolition of slavery in the State of New York in 1827, she has known what it is to drink to the dregs the bitterest cup of human degradation.

Narrative of Sojourner Truth is an amazing book; It's the second of such narratives I have read. It seems poorly organized, but when one considers that this is a narrative of a lady who at a point in her life couldn't get her head around dates and numbers, one realizes it couldn't have been done better. Truth's narrative, like that of Frederick Douglas, gives me vicarious trauma of the appalling evil of slavery imposed on otherwise good people by a system so cunningly worked out to call out the brute in humanity. A system that now exists in a subtle form but not less efficacious: it has morphed from allowing people get away with murder without reason at all to allowing people get away with murder with trifle reason.

Started this book a couple of weeks ago, I'm not an avid reader (specially of the conventional kind). E-books are my ideal reading, Sorry. Beautiful story, thought provoking, heart-wrenching. The separation of families, the chattel system, the cruelty on a subhuman level is just a few ways of describing 'Sojourner Truth'. Worth reading it over and over again,

A powerful and emotional reading experience, one that should be required reading in Middle School, as I agree with one reviewer's post.

Sojourner Truth was born into slavery in the northern state of New York around 1800, and escaped into freedom a year before the state abolished slavery within its borders. Her given name was Isabella Baumfree, and she changed her name to Sojourner during her travels. An abolitionist, women's rights activists, itinerant preacher, she's an extremely important figure for this period of American history. And, her story is both brutal and inspiring. Brutal, because the nature of slavery is just inhuman, and inspiring, because her personal connection with God and Jesus served as a source of strength for her her entire life.

There are many notable things from this biography for me. First, Sojourner was illiterate, as many blacks and women were during her time. This is not her autobiography, so do not come to this book expecting her words. The book is written by Sojourner's friend Olive Gilbert, who wrote from Sojourner's dictation of her memoirs. As such, there is much of Gilbert in the writing, as is to be expected. Additionally, Sojourner was a very religious woman, and spirituality plays a necessary and immediate role in this book, as it did in the lives of many people who lived in these times.

I picked up this book because I was inspired by my 4th grade daughter's book - in her social studies section of class, she is reading Freedom Crossing, a fictional account of the Underground Railroad. When I told her about Sojourner Truth, she was shocked that there were slaves in the North. And that when they were freed, the majority were left to starvation and destitution. I hope she picks up this narrative at some time in the next few years. I know I will encourage her in that regard.

What a sad, yet uplifting, story of Sojourner Truth's life. And let us not forget these words of the narrator who wrote this book:

"O the 'fantastic tricks' which the American people are 'playing before high Heaven!' O their profane use of the sacred name of Liberty! O their impious appeal to the God of the oppressed, for his divine benediction while they are making merchandise of his image! Do they not blush? Nay, they glory in their shame! Once a year they take special pains to exhibit themselves to the world in all their republican deformity and Christian barbarity, insanely supposing that they thus excite the envy, admiration and applause of mankind. The nations are looking at the dreadful spectacle with disgust and amazement. However sunken and degraded they may be, they are too elevated, too virtuous, too humane to be guilty of such conduct. Their voice is heard, saying–'Americans! we hear your boasts of liberty, your shouts of independence, your declarations of hostility to every form of tyranny, your assertions that all men are created free and equal, and endowed by their Creator with an inalienable right to liberty, the merry peal of your bells, and the deafening roar of your artillery; but, mingling with all these, and rising above them all, we also hear the clanking of chains! the shrieks and wailings of millions of your own countrymen, whom you wickedly hold in a state of slavery as much more frightful than the oppression which your fathers resisted unto blood, as the tortures of the Inquisition surpass the stings of an insect!"

I had enjoyed reading about this true account of how she worked through difficulties while trying to become a free woman, and yet she still endeavored to make a number of her own amazing accomplishments which inspired me. Totally worth getting this for my Kindle!

So fascinating to read a slice of history! This is Sojourner Truth's narrative of her own life. She was illiterate, so someone else wrote down her words. She carried this slight book with her to sell when she toured the country speaking about the ills of slavery and about women's rights. So many authors have written about Sojourner Truth, but there's nothing like hearing a person's own words.

Excellent narrative providing insight into both insight into both the subject of 19th century slavery and into the nature of American religion in New York and the surrounding states at that time. A necessary primary resource for understanding early 19th century America in the north states.
While I knew the name of Sojourner Truth, I knew little about her. This contemporaneous account of her life reveals a woman who had had an encounter with God that changed and shaped the rest of her life. In spite of the injustice of slavery she devoted her days to sharing the love and knowledge of God.
