Underground Railroad Sculpture of Sojourner Truth, Battle Creek, Michigan

Battle Creek in Michigan, USA is home for the world's largest sculpture honoring the thousands of southern slaves and fugitives. Sojourner Truth was born as a slave in 1797. Speaking out for justice and human rights and the abolition of slavery, she became the most famous African-American woman in the 19th century.
Loved the card at first sight and received it from Denise for the Fast Favourites Tag on Postcrossing
