Truth’s landmark slave narrative chronicles her experiences as a slave in upstate New York and her transformation into an extraordinary abolitionist, feminist, orator, and preacher. This text is one of the most important documents of slavery ever written, as well as being a partial autobiography of the woman who became a pioneer in the struggles for racial and sexual equality."The time is long overdue for a compelling look at the legendary Sojourner Truth... shedding light on the most enigmatic black woman of the 19th century."— Darlene Clark Hine, Professor of History, Michigan State University
