Sojourner Truth : Angel

Sojourner Truth : Angel

“The Spirit calls me, and I must go.” Sojourner Truth.
African American abolitionist and women’s rights activist. Black History is infinite.

I follow you

Through the thicket and the cold

through the rivers and the wild

from the harnessed beauty to the captive freely

singing, freely moving to a mountain, to a land where

riches flowing from the heart won’t stop my walking, stop

my talking, no infringement in this shadow. Here I come.

I know your glory, know the sight of Hiawatha, know the land that

hears the mourning, know the features of my freedom.

Here I am. I follow you.
