About Sojourner Truth:
Sojourner Truth was born in 1797 as "Isabella Baumfree", a slave to the Ardinburgh family, Dutch-speakers in Ulser County, New York. At a young age, Isabella had connection with God and spoke to him often in Low Dutch.
After years of abuse, devout admiration for her master and disappointment, Isabella walked from the American slave system at God's command. After living years in New York City, her life as "Isabella" comes to a head.
She walks from the city in faith, taking on the name Sojourner Truth and traveling where the Spirit leads. Through God, faith, desire for truth and wit, Sojourner Truth walks through every phase of life speaking as an abolitionist, an activist for women's right and a minister of God's "good truth."
