Richman, I. K. (2016). Sojourner Truth: Prophet of Social Justice. London: Routledge.
In her book, Richman discusses Sojourner Truth’s vision, bravery and struggle for social justice. She shows how her activism helped to bring slavery to an end, promote women’s voting rights, and improve the racial status of the Blacks. The author systematically describes the character, context, enslavement, emancipation, abolitionism, and social justice activism of Truth. She presents her courageous determination and powerful spirituality in the process of advocating for the rights of women and the African Americans.
Richman’s book will be very important for the planned portfolio research. It will provide significant information about the character, motivations, missions, and accomplishments of Sojourner Truth.
