    schema:description "In Slavery Time, when Hope was a seed waiting to be planted, Isabella looked at the night sky and dreamed of freedom. She could not read or write. She had few legal protections. And she had been torn from her mother, her brothers and sisters, and even her children. But she had strength, heart, and perserverance. Isabella was a woman who began life enslaved, but she had a vision of freedom that led her to take a new name: Sojourner Truth. And with her towering spirit, she blazed a trail of healing that we still follow today. -- From dust jacket."@en ;
