From the Back Cover:

God spoke in my heart a new name which fits me like a new dress made just for me. . . . I think with a name like Sojourner Truth a body has some respect at last.

Here is the celebrated story of how former slave Isabella Baumfree transformed herself into the preacher and orator Sojourner Truth, one of the most inspiring and important figures of the abolitionist and women's rights movements. Written in the fiery and eloquent voice of Sojourner Truth herself, this moving portrait will captivate readers just as Sojourner's words enthralled her listeners.

Award-winning author Ann Turner and Coretta Scott King Award–winning illustrator James Ransome have created a poignant tribute to this champion of civil rights and equality for all. Brave, determined, and deeply spiritual, Sojourner Truth and her legacy are a continuing source of inspiration for generations to come.
