<P><span>Published in 1875, this biography covers the early life, time in slavery and accomplishments of Isabella <span>Baumfree</span>, known by her self-given name, Sojourner Truth.</span></p><p>Born into slavery in New York, Sojourner Truth was sold several times throughout her teenage years. While owned by the John Dumont family, she married Thomas, another of the family's slaves.</p><p><span>In 1827, New York emancipated all slaves, but Sojourner had left her husband and four children to run away with her youngest child. While working as a maid for the family of Isaac Van <span>Wagenen</span>, she learned that one of her sons had been sold to slave owners in Alabama. In an unprecedented case, she sued the owners in court, arguing that her son had been set free under New York Law. She won his return.</span></p><p>In 1843, she officially took the name Sojourner Truth, believing that the change was an instruction from the Holy Spirit. Soon after, she became a traveling preacher, the literal meaning of her new name.</p><p>She became a public speaker for the abolitionist movement in the 1840s and began to speak in favor of women's suffrage in the 1850s. In 1851, she gave her most famous speech <em>Ain't I a Woman?</em> at a women's rights convention in Ohio.</p><p>During the American Civil War, she gathered food and clothing contributions for black regiments and met President Abraham Lincoln at the White House in 1864. There, she spoke to him about ending segregation on public transportation like buses and street cars.</p><p>After the war ended, she continued to speak and advocate for women's rights, black rights and other causes. Following her death in 1870, she was memorialized with books, monuments, museums, hospitals and more.
