This authentically detailed replica costume brings to life one of America’s most prominent abolitionists and women’s rights activists, Sojourner Truth. Truth was born into slavery as Isabella “Bell” Baumfree; it wasn’t until later, in 1943, that she gave herself the name “Sojourner Truth.” In 1826 Truth escaped slavery with her infant daughter, after which she went to court to recover her son. She became the first black woman to win such a case against a white man. Later she helped recruit black troops for the Union, though Truth is best known today for her speech on gender inequality, titled “Aint’ I A Woman?”, which was delivered extemporaneously in 1851 at the Ohio Women’s Rights Convention.

We have recreated the iconic look of one of America’s most well-known abolitionists and African American historical figures with a superior poly-cotton blend fabric that retains quality while being easy to clean. The dress has a simple babylock hem at the bottom to allow easy adjustment for height and a zipper in the back. Shawl and headscarf are made from cotton fabric.

Costume Includes: Dress, White Shawl, White Headscarf and Wire rimmed Glasses

Please note that color may vary from what is pictured due to different material dye lots, or the color components on your screen.

 What size should I order?

"Selecting the right size is crucial when ordering our garments. Please refer to the size chart provided for each individual item, as it is tailored to the specific measurements of that item. You can find the size chart as a photo in the product listing or on a separate informational page. Please follow the measurement instructions provided on the size chart.

Our garments do not follow standard modern-day sizing because they are created based on patterns from specific historical periods. The measurements we provide on the size chart represent the dimensions of the garment itself, not body measurements.

 If you're unsure about your size, measure a similar, NON-STRETCH garment you already own and love. Compare its measurements to the ones on our size chart to ensure you choose the right fit."
