Only Passing Through is the inspiring story of how a woman, born a slave with no status or dignity, transformed herself into one of the most powerful voices of the abolitionist movement. Sojourner Truth was born in 1797 as a slave and was determined to fight the evils of human bondage. At 46, she had a dream that told her she must travel the country and tell people what it meant to be a slave.
