A Point of Note:
The above sources were found both in the library and on the internet. The name ‘Sojourner Truth’ was used as the main search term. It was easy to find scholarly books, journal articles and other sources containing information on the topic. Perhaps one of the main difficulties that have been encountered in this portfolio project is that its topic is too wide. There is a lot of information on the topic. It is difficult for one to determine what specifically to talk about Sojourner Truth.
