Sojourner Truth is famous for speaking out for women’s rights & the right for black people & women to vote. When Sojourner was 46 years she changed her name to Sojourner & her last name to Truth because she was always honest. On June 1 she became a traveling preacher. An accomplishment for Sojourner was escaping slavery all by herself. If you think Harriet Tubman was braver than Sojourner think again. Other slaves went in groups.
