Sojourner truth's birth date is not known because she was a slave.She was born in Ulster County, New York and died in a sanitarium in Michigan on November 26, 1883. :D
This is the first time of many times she was sold in her life.She was 9 years old and was sold to John Neely for $100 along with some sheep.
After Sojourner had ran away, she found issac and Maria's. Who then took her baby in until the emancipation act had been approved.
She married and older slave named thomas and they had 5 kids.
Sojourner and her infant daughter Sophia had escaped to freedom in the night.
Growing up she didnt know the lord. But in 1829 something hit her and she said the lord had called her to preech.
This is when she delivered her extrodinary speech "Aint i woman". Which changed the way alot of people thought about slavery.
Throughout her whole life, she won many court cases and went through many battles.
Her whole life she was against slavery.
As said before she became a devout christian and went to preech. She would travel miles everywhere and prech to 100's.
