|Plot Summary of Prophesying Daughters: Black Women Preacher and the Word, 1823 - 1913|
|"At a time when America was struggling with its newly found independence, the country was still faced with slavery in most of the South. "Prophesying Daughters" tells the stories of four women, determined to spread the word in a time when women were ostracized for trying to take on a task dominated by men. These remarkable women (Jarena Lee, Julia Foote, Maria Stewart, and Frances Gaudet) took on menial jobs, traveled throughout the country, endured the hardships of economic and physical discrimination (from their fellow African-Americans as well as White Americans), and somehow managed to carve a place for themselves in ecumenical circles. The one hundred years chronicled in this biographical treatise shows the indominable strength of the spirit and the unyeilding perseverance of dedicated churchwomen."
Reginald D. Garrard, Resident Scholar
