A celebrated author-illustrator team tells the story of one of the most unique and courageous women in American history, Sojourner Truth, who worked relentlessly to end slavery and ensure freedom for all. Full color.
From the Publisher
Born into slavery, Belle had to endure the cruelty of several masters before she escaped to freedom. But she knew she wouldn''t really be free unless she was helping to end injustice. That''s when she changed her name to Sojourner and began traveling across the country, demanding equal rights for black people and for women. Many people weren''t ready for her message, but Sojourner was brave, and her truth was powerful. And slowly, but surely as Sojourner''s step-stomp stride, America began to change.
