Spine reads: "Amanda Smith's Own Story". The autobiography of Amanda Berry Smith, born a slave in Maryland in 1837, who, after her family won their freedom, assisted in helping escaped slaves along the underground railroad, and served as a temperance advocate. She became an evangelical Methodist (and was among the most influential black female evangelists of the nineteenth century), partaking in largely white Camp Meetings throughout the United States whilst also visiting urban missions as an advocate of the "holiness movement". Smith would later take her evangelical work abroad, travelling the world for many years as a independent missionary in India and western Africa (the experiences of whichmake up the latter half of this volume). She published her autobiography i n large part to help fund an orphanage that she had established in the Chicago area, the first for African American children in the state. "The novelty of a colored woman from America, who had in her childhood been a slave, appearing before an audience in Calcutta, was sufficient to attract attention, but this alone would not account for the popularity which she enjoyed throughout her whole stay in [the] city. [...] As the crowd rushed up to the spot, and saw her with her beaming face upturned to the evening sky, pouring out her soul in prayer, tehy became perfectly still, and stood as if transfixed to the spot! Not even a whisper disturbed the solemn silence." (fromThoburn's introduction, page VI). Contents: 1.
