9781605200934: The Narrative of Sojourner Truth

Written in 1850, The Narrative of Sojourner Truth is the autobiography of American abolitionist and women's rights activist SOJOURNER TRUTH (1797-1883). Born into slavery, Truth begins with her earliest recollections as a child living with other slaves in the lower floor of her master's home. She details her living conditions, her family, and the trials of her life that began at the age of nine, when she was sold to a family in Ulster county New York. From an early age, Truth had developed a strong faith in God, and she returns constantly to this faith throughout her narrative. All she has to turn to during the many sufferings discussed throughout this book is that faith. Despite the fact that she never learned to read, she engaged in religious study whenever possible, having scripture read to her by children who would not offer their own interpretations. As a freedom fighter after the New York State Emancipation Act, Truth was accomplished enough to have published this work a year before she delivered her famous "Ain't I a Woman?" speech at the 1851 Ohio Women's Rights Convention, which cemented her legend.

From the Publisher:

" Washington deserves out gratitude for reclaiming Truth and shedding light on the most enigmatic black woman of the 19th century." --Darlene Clark Hine, Michigan State University

From the Inside Flap:

Narrative of Sojourner Truth is one of the most important documents of slavery ever written, as well as being a partial autobiography of the woman who became a pioneer in the struggles for racial and sexual equality. With an eloquence that resonates more than a century after its original publication in 1850, the narrative bears witness to Sojourner Truth's thirty years of bondage in upstate New York and to the mystical revelations that turned her into a passionate and indefatigable abolitionist.
In this new edition, which has been edited and extensively annotated by the distinguished scholar and biographer of Sojourner Truth, Margaret Washington, Truth's testimony takes on added dimensions: as a lens into the little-known world of northern slavery; as a chronicle of spiritual conversion; and as an inspiring account of a black woman striving for personal and political empowerment.
