9781435837102: Sojourner Truth's

This is a lively examination of Sojourner Truth's historic speech at the women's rights convention in 1851. Using primary source documents, it includes biographical information that shows how Truth's role as a social reformer straddled the abolitionist and women's rights movements. The book provides solid background information on the plight of women and African Americans in mid- to late nineteenth-century America, and explains some of the legends about Truth. It details and analyzes the two competing historical accounts of the speech, both of which are provided as transcripts.

From Booklist:

Gr. 6-9. Brezina faces an unusual challenge in this volume from the Great Historic Debates and Speeches series. Because Sojourner Truth could neither read nor write, there is no authoritative version of the speech under discussion. The book does a good job with the topic, though, by providing clearly written biographical information about Truth, offering a straightforward account of the versions of the speech that were reported, discussing their relative merits, and including two texts in an appendix. One interesting historical sidelight is that only one version of the speech uses the key phrase by which it is known today: "and ain't I a woman?" Carolyn Phelan
