“If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down, these women together ought to be able to turn it right again.”
― Sojourner Truth
In this courageous book about Sojourner Truth, you will meet the tall, powerful former slave and abolitionist whose biblically-based call for equality—for both African Americans and women—secured her a place in American history.
Wherever she appeared, the wise words and electrifying presence of Sojourner Truth brought audiences to their feet. The lengthy shadow cast by her near-six-foot frame and the challenge to injustice issued by her stinging speeches have secured her a place in American history—a place as a woman of courage.
We've added an all-natural, hand-crafted ornament of Sojourner Truth to create an inspiring gift for a courageous friend or a keepsake for yourself to remember the reason you face your own battles. Our artisan partners in Kyrgyzstan have faced adversity as women craftspeople and rural farmers whose distance from the cities, lack of advanced computer skills and marketing availability would otherwise limit their ability to achieve sustainable employment or lving wages.
Allow Sojourner Truth's story to help reinvigorate the desire to help others for the greater good, to take a brave stand for the voice-less, to change the world in small ways for the betterment of all.
