Sojourner Truth was born into slavery in New York in 1797 or 1798. She never knew for sure which year she was born, or even whether it was summer or winter. By the time she was a young woman, Sojourner knew she could no longer live as a slave and, with the help of Quakers, escaped to freedom. She then began her long struggle to reunite her family and to free other slaves.
