The Story of Jane

Lecture by Dr. Quincy D. Newell

Thursday, February 15, 2018 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

How does our understanding of American history change when we consider the life of Jane Manning James, a Connecticut-born African American who converted to Mormonism in the early 1840s?

Professor Quincy D. Newell, author of a biography of James, will discuss how James’s life adds depth to our histories of African Americans, women, the American West, and American religion. Dr. Newell is Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Hamilton College and co-editor of New Perspectives in Mormon Studies, 2013.
