This biography, written in poetic text and illustrated with paintings in a golden, hopeful hue, relates the life of Sojourner Truth: "Big. Black. Beautiful. True. That was Sojourner." The climax of the book depicts Sojourner's rousing "And ain't I a woman?" speech at the 1851 women's rights convention in Akron, Ohio.
