Jaimie Crumley’s research explores black freedom in antebellum America as seen through the lives and writings of black Christian women. She focuses on women who taught and lectured in Boston, Philadelphia, New York, Washington, D.C. and England. These women provide insight into the role of Christian spirituality in shaping freedom for black women. Their histories underscore the complexities of race, gender, sexuality, and religiosity in antebellum United States. Her paper will be emailed a week in advance to members of the History of Women, Men, and Sexuality working group.
