Sojourner Truth by Gwenyth Swain
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book offers an in-depth look at the life of one of history's most acclaimed heroines. Sojourner Truth was an extraordinary woman. In her time, few women spoke in public and almost no former slaves gave speeches. Few whites - in the North or the South of the United States - thought black slaves had much to say. After all, slaves like Sojourner Truth were uneducated. But Sojourner Truth never let her sex, her lack of education or the colour of her skin stop her. And by being unstoppable, she was an inspiration to people in her time and ever since. "I don't read such small stuff as letters", she once said, "I read men and nations".
