Sojourner ran to her freedom in 1826. She was a slave and hated it. A few years later she met Mr. Abraham Lincoln.
Soon everyone knew about Sojourner Truth. She gave speeches about how bad slavery is.
One of her famous quotes is I am not going to die, Im going home like a shooting star.
Sadly she died of old age in 1883. She lived to be 86 years old!
Ms. Truth never gave up even when times were hard. She was born a slave and escaped and then became famous. I think she was a very brave girl and had a lot of heart to help prevent slavery for her people.
