Today for #BlackHERstory Month, we recognize #TruthTeller, Sojourner Truth. She is best known for her speech on racial inequalities, "Ain't I a Woman?" delivered at the Ohio Women's Rights Convention in 1851.

Sojourner Truth was an evangelist, abolitionist, women’s rights activist and author who lived grew up as a slave, serving several masters throughout New York before escaping to freedom in 1826. #BlackWomenLead #BlackHistoryMonth
After gaining her freedom, Truth became a Christian and, at what she believed was God’s urging, preached about abolitionism and equal rights for all, highlighted in her stirring “Ain’t I a Woman?” speech, delivered at a women’s convention in Ohio in 1851. #BlackWomenLead
She continued her crusade for the rest of her life, earning an audience with President Abraham Lincoln and becoming one of the world’s best-known human rights crusaders. #BlackWomenLead #BlackHistoryMonth
In 2009, she became the first black woman honored with a bust in the U.S. Capitol and in 2014, she was included in the Smithsonian Institutions list of the 100 most significant Americans. Thank you Sojourner Truth for being a Black woman who leads. #BlackWomenLead
