Sojourner’s last name “Truth” is the most befitting name I’ve ever heard of. Sojourner spent her entire life making observations about life, understanding, and finding the truth. Then preaching it, so other people knew the truth too. In source A, it is said that Sojourner went to court three times, and won each case. She brought the cases in pursuit of defining the truth, and she was able to win them, as a black woman ex-slave in the 1800s because she fought for her case with the truth. People had no choice but to listen and agree, because they knew what she was speaking made sense, that what she was speaking was a sort of Gospel. All she did was make observations and say them without alterations, and her voice was able to blanket an entire crowd. “When she addressed an audience, her low resonant voice, especially when raised in song, could still the most hostile crowd.” (Source A). Her speech “Ain’t I A Woman” exemplifies this power, this influence she had with words.
