The name Sojourner-Truth has become established in the hearts and minds of modern humanity. Consequently, she is a symbol of freedom, justice, strength, and endurance.
This website has information showing the curious connections between Prophet Matthias: and Isabella Baumfree or Isabella Van Wagener, more commonly known as Sojourner-Truth. Prophet Matthias called himself the spirit of truth, and when he and Isabella eventually parted company, she, after experiencing an epiphany, began calling herself Sojourner-Truth.
Interestingly, the story of Sojourner-Truth, and Matthias together in New York should never be forgotten! Reflecting on her activities, Isabella Van Wagener concluded that; she had been taking part in a great drama, which was, in itself, but one great system of robbery and wrong.’ Surprisingly, she was in fact, Prophet Matthias’ first acolyte, and stayed loyal to him until the bitter end!
After enduring her time in the Zion of Prophet Matthias, Isabella like a rolling stone wanted to move forward with her life. Saying her farewells to her friends, she re-named herself Sojourner in the year of 1843.
A sojourner was and is a term used for a person who resides temporarily in a place. Consequently. there are two original historical records, confirming Isabella calling herself Sojourner. The first was with Mrs. Whiting her landlady, the second was when Isabella became concerned about her chosen name of Sojourner. Interestingly after conversing with a Jewish woman, she added ‘Truth’ to this her third name change. The name Sojourner-Truth is a pseudonym adopted after her departure from New York in 1843. After 1843, on all other occasions, it safe to say, the name was Sojourner-Truth.
In time and between the years of 1843 and 1850: the evidence, both direct and indirect, confirms the evolution of Isabella’s name; from Sojourner into SOJOURNER-TRUTH.’ Mr. Oliver Gilbert in 1850, penned the name Sojourner-Truth. When Gilbert penned this name, he placed a space between the SOJOURNER and the Truth. In time the name once again evolved, and the accepted name for Isabella is now SOJOURNER-TRUTH. The name of SOJOURNER-TRUTH is a symbol of justice and freedom for all, regardless of nationality, gender, or religion!’
Sojourner-Truth through her actions and words is considered a hero, she is famous for her ability to stand her ground in words and physical activities. Her ability to work, adapt, and change her world has made her crucial in American history. Understanding the name of Sojourner-Truth is essential in accepting the person behind the name. The full unrestricted story of Sojourner-Truth with the notorious Matthias is in the book Matthias & Smith Clash of the Prophets.
Isabella Van Wagener, before she evolved into the icon of Sojourner-Truth, enjoyed the name of Bella. It is my personal opinion that Bella was her favored name before 1843.
I have chosen to use the name Sojourner-Truth: as a mark of my respect for Bella. Some other names being: Belle, Belia, Bell, & Lil Bett.
