Sojourner Truth Quotes

Where there is so much racket, there must be something out of kilter.

What we give to the poor, we lend to the Lord.

Sojourner Truth (1797-1883) is an amazing witness of many formidable causes in American history.  During her lifetime, she served as an evangelist, civil rights activist, and author.  Being born into slavery, she escaped in 1826.  Upon gaining her freedom, she became a Christian, and she felt the Lord urging her to take up the causes of equal rights and the abolition of slavery.

  1. I want to say she was also in the index file box my fourth grade teacher had on her desk for writing summaries/essays for extra credit. I loved reading about so many people who made a difference in their world. Thanks for sharing!
