In Jet Magazine’s February 11th issue, Mallory, who is known for her work against gun violence and misogynistic song lyrics, was named the “Sojourner Truth of Our Time.”
Truth was born in to slavery as Isabella Baumfree. She changed her name, becoming an abolitionist as well as the foremost activist for women’s rights, with her riveting ”Ain’t I a Woman?” speech that solidified her as a pioneer for women’s suffrage.
