Item description:

This pendant is made from Sterling and Fine silver. "Ain't I a Woman" is stamped on the front, Sojourner Truth is stamped on the back and there is a small garnet embellishment. It features a bezel set, naturally shaped, genuine sea glass heart that I found in Northern California. This pendant was made to honor Sojourner Truth a abolitionist and a women's right activist. She was nine years old when she was sold into slavery. In 1827 her freedom was bought for $20. In 1851 she gave a speech at the Ohio Women's Rights convention on racial inequalities. Her speech titled "Ain't I a Woman" was written to persuade people that women black or white should be treated equal to men.
