In high school I read more biographies than I do today. I do not have a good reason other than there are so many other things I am wanting to read. 295 more words
'Sojourner Truth was an African-American abolitionist and women's rights activist. Truth was born into slavery in Swartekill, Ulster County, New York, but escaped with her infant daughter to freedom in 1826.' (wikipedia) I have read a lot about slavery and the history of slavery. William Wilberforce is a personal hero, someone whom I find inspiring as an abolitionist and as a Christian. I know less about Sojourner Truth, but you can hear what an incredible woman she was in her own words as spoken here by Nkechi. Thank you, Laura, for posting this.
