Description: Sojourner Truths narrative is a powerful rendering of bondage, denial, and loss transcended by genius, family, and a spiritual base. It juxtaposes spirituality with moral turpitude. Truth was a freethinker who lived within a family of wretched circumstances in New Yorks Ulster County; she was a wife whose runaway husband had been beaten into submission; a mother who reclaimed her only son from a brutal Georgia slaver; a person of principles who was duped by slavers and false prophets; and, finally, at 46, an orator, abolitionist, and member of the Northampton utopian community.

Ashay says, "Sojourner Truth still stands as one of the greatest African Americans of all time. Her great book belongs in the classroom and in all literature and history collections."
