One reason she is famous is because she helped Frederick Douglass with their never ending struggle to end slavery. While she was doing this, her first slave owner let all of his slaves go and he also joined the fight to end slavery. When they were trying to end slavery they encouraged a whole lot of farmers to let their slaves go and help encourage a lot more farmers to let their slaves go. Another thing she is famous for is she helped to win back women's rights. It was very hard to get women's rights to be equal or the same as men's rights because was a women. Preachers who were men said that women can't have the same rights as men because Eve had ate off the forbidden fruit. After the preacher had stated that, she said if women can turn the world upside then they can turn it rightside up.
This stamp commemorates Sojourner Truth. When she was little and even when she was grown up she loved to stop and watch the birds fly and sometimes she imagined that the birds were in different colors of the rainbow or just multi-colored. The location of this stamp is in the sky. The setting, location, and scene of the stamp is in the morning, in the sky and on a clear day. The colors on my stamp are a blue background, orange and purple letters and a multi-colored bird or condor. The symbols on my stamp are a big S the word TRUTH and a multi-colored condor. The big S stands for her first name Sojourner and the word truth is her last name and the multi-colored condor stands for the birds she loved to watch from when she was little until the end of her life. It also stands for her ideas because they embraced universal freedom. The ideas behind this stamp was to present something which represents simple, direct, but attractive truth.
