Sojourner Truth, a preacher, abolitionist and women's rights activist, became one of the most significant figures in African-American history after traveling extensively across the US to speak about the evils of the slave trade and social injustices. 

Friday's Google Doodle, designed by Philadelphia-based artist Loveis Wise, honors the legacy of Truth and her fight for racial equality and justice in the US. "As a black woman, illustrating Sojourner Truth was especially personal and meaningful to me," Wise told Google. "Her journey and persistence inspired major change in both rights for enslaved African-Americans and women. Her history is deeply rooted to my ancestors and others around the world."
