This Sojourner Truth stamp represents the late Sojourner Truth, an African-American abolitionist, and a women's right's reformer. She was born into slavery in Swartekill, Ulster County, New York, but escaped with her infant daughter to freedom in 1826. She died November 26, 1883, in Battle Creek, MI. The stamp relates to the issue of anti-slavery and Women's rights, both of which Sojourner fought for. This impacted people today because now slavery *almost* doesn't exist and women now have plenty of rights.
