A primeira escravizada a conseguir que um senhor de escravos seja condenado na justiça.. Uma vida de provações e resistência, narrada no livro que impulsionou a luta pelos direitos dos negros e das mulheres.
"A fagulha da esperança que levou aquela mulher ex-escravizada e autodidata a não temer soltar seu grito é o motor que nos impulsiona adiante na batalha atual para trocar o ponto de interrogação pela exclamação e definitivamente afirmar: 'Eu sou uma mulher!'" (ELIANA ALVES CRUZ)… (lisätietoja)

This spunky, resilient woman faced a lot of horrific circumstances and did some extraordinary things. Well worth the read, though it should be noted that the work is not actually autobiographical.

This account is Sojourner telling her story to Olive Gilbert up to her last interview with her master. She was an amazing lady. She took on the courts to get her son back for an improbable win. She walked all over New England walking and working, preaching the gospel. What she goes on to do after this book is even more amazing.
