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.
