Summary
  • Sojourner Truth was born into slavery but possessed a mind and a vision that knew no bounds. So Tall Within traces her life from her painful childhood through her remarkable emancipation to her incredible leadership in the movement for rights for both women and African Americans
  • In Slavery Time, when Hope was a seed waiting to be planted, Isabella looked at the night sky and dreamed of freedom. She could not read or write. She had few legal protections. And she had been torn from her mother, her brothers and sisters, and even her children. But she had strength, heart, and perserverance. Isabella was a woman who began life enslaved, but she had a vision of freedom that led her to take a new name: Sojourner Truth. And with her towering spirit, she blazed a trail of healing that we still follow today. -- From dust jacket
