The Story of Jane: how an obscure black woman changes american history

 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? Quincy D. Newell, author of the first full-length biography of James, will discuss how James’s life adds depth to our histories of African Americans, women, the American West, and American religion.

One Reality Spiritual Wisdom Based in the Quran

A talk by Dr. Yamina Bouguenaya


Friday, MARCH 22 | 7:00-9:00pm

The Other Side – 2011 Genesee Street, Utica Co-Sponsored by the Interfaith Coalition of Greater Utica

After completing her Ph.D. in Quantum Physics in England, Dr Bouguenaya lived in Turkey, before

moving to the United States. By then, Yamina's interest had shifted from the world of physics to the

vaster and much more mysterious world of the self. This interest led her to encounter Islamic spirituality

and to discover the healing wisdom of the Qur'an.
