Day 3: Influential Black Woman 

Sojourner Truth 

I picked Ms. Truth because she is inspirational in so many ways. She was known for being an abolitionist and playing a huge role in the women’s rights suffrage. She became the 1st black woman to win a case against a white man. Her best known speech about gender inequalities was titled “Aint I A WOMAN? She helped out in the Civil War and have many other accomplishments. 

She passed away in 1883 at age 86
