I am of African Decent ~ An African American Woman.

The name Neah (originally spelled 'Nia') African: meaning ~Purpose...to do~ This name was given to me, by someone who was very dear to me.

I am a firm believer in Knowledge, to learn of each other's Cultures, get a better understanding of and to Respect each others Differences. Sit down and talk to and get to know your fellow man/woman/child...you will be surprised at what you will learn.

Forget about stereotyping or listening to other's misguided feelings about any Race of people. Always seek Knowledge.

My Quote: "Remember...Knowledge is Key, without it...Racism will live on in Ignorance."

This speech was given at the Ohio Women's Rights Convention of 1851 in Akron, Ohio.

Well, children, where there is so much racket there must be something out of kilter. I think that 'twixt the negroes of the South and the women at the North, all talking about rights, the white men will be in a fix pretty soon. But what's all this here talking about?

That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud-puddles, or gives me any best place!

And ain't I a woman? Look at me! Look at my arm! I have ploughed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me!

And ain't I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man - when I could get it - and bear the lash as well!

And ain't I a woman? I have borne thirteen children, and seen most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother's grief, none but Jesus heard me!

And ain't I a woman? Then they talk about this thing in the head; what's this they call it? That's it, honey. What's that got to do with women's rights or negroes' rights? If my cup won't hold but a pint, and yours holds a quart, wouldn't you be mean not to let me have my little half measure full?

Then that little man in black there, he says women can't have as much rights as men, 'cause Christ wasn't a woman! Where did your Christ come from? Where did your Christ come from? From God and a woman! Man had nothing to do with Him.

If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down all alone, these women together ought to be able to turn it back, and get it right side up again! And now they is asking to do it, the men better let them. Obliged to you for hearing me, and now old Sojourner ain't got nothing more to say.






Evangelist Sojourner Truth was born into slavery and named Isabella; she was freed in 1827 when New York state declared emancipation. Claiming to hear the voice of God, she quit being a servant and adopted the name "Sojourner Truth" in 1843, embarking on a mobile mission throughout the North to spread the word and preach abolition and civil rights.

Abraham Lincoln appointed her a counselor to the freedmen of Washington, D.C., during the Civil War, but she also championed the rights of women with vigor at a time when the suffrage movement had begun.
