Why is Sojourner Truth remembered till today?

Sojourner Truth was a woman of remarkable intelligence despite her illiteracy. She was born a slave, and her real name was Isabella Baum free. She was sold several times before slavery was abolished in 1827 in New York.

Inspired by religion, Truth transformed herself from a domestic servant named Isabella into a powerful preacher named Sojourner Truth. She had great presence. She was tall- some 5 feet 11 inches in height. Her voice was low, and her singing voice was marvellous. Whenever she spoke in public, she also sang. No one ever forgot the power of Sojourner Truth’s singing, just as her wit and originality of phrasing were also memorable. She became an outspoken advocate of women’s rights as well as blacks’ rights. Truth became a national symbol for strong black women, indeed, for all strong women, and her words have inspired black women and poor people all over the world to this day.
