Sojourner Truth (1797–November 26, 1883) was the self-given name, from 1843, of Isabella Baumfree, an American slave, abolitionist and women's rights activist. Truth was born into slavery in Swartekill, New York. Her best-known speech, Ain't I a Woman?, was delivered in 1851 at the Ohio Women's Rights Convention in Akron, Ohio. (Wikipedia)

About YOUR HEROESIt is time to have a group in flickr that acknowledges the greatness of man, whoever that man is, whether that person is a she or a he. What is important is that you perceive that person to be YOUR HERO.
YOUR HERO can be your neighbor next door who went out of their way when you and your family needed help the most. He or she can be the teacher in your school, your officemate, friend or a kin.
YOUR HERO can also be your family members, government leaders, writers, journalists and more.
YOUR HERO can also be yourself.
Share photos that speak of "heroism" done at any given moment in your life or in the lives of the people known to you.
You can also post the portraits and biographies of your heroes too.
This is the group that will acknowledge them for whatever positive things they have contributed to your community or to the world.
