Sojourner Truth was an amazing woman who lived an extraordinary life.
Her famous speech given in Ohio in 1851 is a simple yet eloquent argument on the equality of the sexes.
There is a bit of controversy, however, as two versions have been recorded, one during the convention, a second a few years later.
The second version is the widely known speech. It is notable though that the second version is in a southern-style dialect which is not how the native New Yorker who only spoke Dutch for her early years talked.
