Her name, Sojourner, means Traveler, and now that we know that fact, we love her story even more. She became a traveler indeed, right after she walked, literally walked, out of slavery, and then she traveled to spread the word about the mistreatment and the injustices she survived and that were still suffered by thousands of slaves. She was the first free black woman abolitionist to, not only advocate for freedom for the black people but also championed the women's rights movement when women didn't even have the right to vote.

Ain't I a woman? is the title of her most famous speech.  And oh yes, she was. She was some woman!

Read Owned by Several Masters, her account of her life experiences while she was a slave and after, and you will get a new appreciation of what a woman with smarts and perseverance can achieve even when impossible obstacles tried to shackle her down. Owned by Several Masters is a great inspirational story no one should miss.
