Description:
New York: Norton, 1997. 5th Printing. Trade Paperback. Near Fine. 5x1x8. 5th printing. An exceptional copy. 1997 Trade Paperback. 384 pp. Sojourner Truth: ex-slave and fiery abolitionist, figure of imposing physique, riveting preacher and spellbinding singer who dazzled listeners with her wit and originality. Straight-talking and unsentimental, Truth became a national symbol for strong black women―indeed, for all strong women. Like Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass, she is regarded as a radical of immense and enduring influence; yet, unlike them, what is remembered of her consists more of myth than of personality.
