Tall within

This is my favorite Sojourner Truth quote: “I felt so tall within.”

Sojourner Truth was tall—six feet tall, and she also was confident and courageous. She was tall within.

Sojourner Truth was born a slave and sold from her parents when she was nine years old. Even though she never learned to read or write, she dictated her autobiography. She traveled for many years as an advocate for freedom for blacks and for women’s rights.

I learned about Truth this summer at a Girl Scout 3Cs Book Club. The 3Cs define the Girl Scout’s mission of encouraging girls to develop courage, confidence and character.
