"The Story of Jane" with Quincy Newell
Jane Elizabeth Manning James was an early African American convert to Mormonism, joining Joseph Smith's movement in the early 1840s and sticking with it until her death in 1908. Scholar Quincy D. Newell, author of the only book-length biography of James, will tell stories about this remarkable woman's life and discuss how including her experience might change the way we think about African American history, the history of Mormon traditions, American women's history, and the history of the American West.
