Born with the name Isabella Baumfree, Sojourner Truth escaped slavery with her daughter and later sued for the freedom of her son. As a free woman, she publicly spoke and advocated for abolition and suffrage across the country, her most famous speech being "Ain't I A Woman?" given at the 1851 Women's Rights Convention. Truth moved to Battle Creek in 1857 until her death in 1883. This statue was dedicated in 1999.
