Sojourner Truth and slavery

When Sojourner Truth was younger she was a slave but later escaped life as a slave and became, not only a speaker towards womans rights but also about slavery and worked amoung Fredrick Douglas.

She got out of slavery because she was sold to a man illegeally so she took the issue to court and won her case thus making her free.

One of her Speeches

That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud-puddles, or gives me any best place! And ain't I a woman? Look at me! Look at my arm! I have ploughed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! And ain't I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man - when I could get it - and bear the lash as well! And ain't I a woman? I have borne thirteen children, and seen most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother's grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ain't I a woman?
