Sojourner Truth Monument

About this Stop

Sojourner Truth was born a slave. After escaping to freedom in the North she delivered her anti-slavery message in almost twenty states. She moved to Battle Creek in 1857 and lived there until her death in 1883. Battle Creek’s 12 foot high sculpture of Sojourner Truth was designed by California artist Tina Allen, and dedicated in 1999.

Fun Fact
