Once Isabella decided that she understood God’s truth, she became an inspirational preacher. A white traveling Methodist teacher named Miss Gear persuaded Isabella to accompany her on her travels, so Isabella left her home county in 1829, when she was about thirty-two years old. Not long afterward, she met and was inspired by a religious reformer named Elijah Pierson. He taught that believers should obey the laws of the Old Testament. He held services in his house, which was sometimes called the Kingdom, and attracted a small group of followers.

He was certain he’d been given a message that it was time to overthrow the whites. Finally, in February 1831, he had yet another vision. A voice told him to arise and prepare himself to slay his enemies with their own weapons. Nat took his time. Slowly, he confided his intentions to a few of the other slaves, who agreed to assist him in carrying out a plan to kill the Travis family and as many other slave-owning families as they could. They spread the word to slaves they trusted on nearby farms and met secretly in the woods to plot their mission.

Alexander grew up in a household where men like John B. Russworm, the first black doctor, Samuel Cornish, a minister and abolitionist, and other prominent blacks were frequent visitors.

His classmates included Ira Aldridge, who would go on to become a noted actor, and Henry Highland Garnett, who had been born a slave in the South but moved to the North with his family.
