Summary

Summary

Rising from the shackles of slavery, Sojourner Truth would become one of the most charismatic evangelical preachers of her time and would lead America to institute reforms in race relations and women's rights. A prophetic force. Truth would anticipate many of the social changes to come and would lead the way for the modern civil rights movement.
