Untitled ("I Sell the Shadow to Support the Substance"), 1864/65. [Portrait of Sojourner Truth, born Isabella "Belle" Baumfree (c. 1797-1883), African-American abolitionist and women's rights activist. Truth was born into slavery in upstate New York, but escaped with her infant daughter in 1826. She copyrighted her own image, allowing the activist who had herself once been sold as property, to profit from the sale of her photograph. Here she holds a piece of knitting. The printed caption alludes to one of photography's early slogans: "Secure the shadow [the photograph] ere the substance [body] fade"]. Albumen print

In 1842, however, they began to associate closely with the abolitionists, and soon their repertory of songs championed such reformist causes as temperance, women's rights, and above all, the abolition of slavery. Both praised and vilified by the press and public, America's first group of social protest folk singers performed throughout the country for more than fifty years
