She gave meaningful speeches, and is still remembered today by many. She was a strong woman with a deep voice, which was great for speeches. In fact, she traveled the world giving these amazing speeches. Her birth name was Isabella Baumfree, but she changed her name to Sojourner Truth because she wanted to be known as a traveler, and she wanted to tell everyone the downright truth about free rights. The problem she was fighting against was the world was full of slavery where people used the blacks as their slaves, as their property, and as their workers. Another thing she fought for was women's rights, how she fought for this is that she went to many conventions and ran most of the clubs for this. Other people involved include the government, other women's rights convention members, people of the U.S., and slaves from around the world. The solution was that Sojourner and many more people gave meaningful speeches, and the government made the laws that provided the solution. A positive effect from the solution is that women had equal rights, and slaves were freed. There were no negative effects as a result of the solution other than the madness of some disbelievers. This is Sojourner Truth.! e n i l e m Ti N s w e r e p a p Slave for twenty-three years from birth in 1799! Ordered for people to be treated equally and have rights!

I also chose them because they were black and white and showed my audience the time period she lived in. The only ones that were colored, were paintings that had been copied later, or posters that had been copied later. I also chose them because they showed watch she was fighting for. In fact, one of them was a poster that was showed when she was going to give her " Ain't I A Woman" speech. Only some of the pictures are really pictures of her because most of the time she didn't smile, which shied away reporters. One of my favorite pictures is the one that is the tan color because she has an interesting expression there. I think that. The pictures I chose were some of the best pictures to choose. I hope you have learned a lot about my peaceable person, Sojourner Truth. Thank you for watching!
