Summary: "The union of religion and political agitation.remains constantthroughout the century.It is most evident in the spritual autobiographies ofevalgelists like Jarena Lee, Julia Foote, and Amanda Smith. Smith's 1893 accountof her career in the African Methodist Episcopal Church, where she rose fromdeaconess despite the significant opposition of male preachers, is all the morestriking against the backdrop of her childhood experience of slavery. In thetransport of her own conversion experience, the young Amanda Smith ran to amirror to see whether her color had changed."--Eric J. Sundquist in The New YorkTimes Book Review.

Inhaltsangabe: Amanda Berry Smith was a trail-blazing black woman evangelist of the nineteenth century. She became a member of Bethel African Methodist Episcopal congregeation in Philadelphia in 1865, a time when women were denied positions of authority in the denomination. By the time of her death in 1915 the church had conceded to women the positions of congregational stewardess, conference evangelist, and denominational deaconess. Her autobiography, first published in 1893, not only captures the spirit of the woman who became a celebrity of Christian evangelism around the world; it also tells us much about black women's historical struggle to be accepted into the ministry and polity of denominations.
