Sojourner Truth was a rebel, an evangelist, a teacher of faith. Her sermons were heard by small and large crowds, if not in a church, then in the fields. A former slave, Sojourner Truth traveled around the country to preach and was actually accused at one point of being a man because of her booming preacher’s voice. A fierce believer in women’s potential as religious leaders, Sojourner Truth represented a group of early bold female evangelists who preached at their own peril and were both loved and despised during their lifetime.
