First female AME preacher, Jarena Lee, is buried here.


First female AME preacher, Jarena Lee, is buried here.

Jarena Lee, 1783- c. 1855, is buried in the cemetery of this church. She was the first AME female preacher and the first African American woman to publish an autobiography. I believe she had preached at this church. There is quite a bit about her on the Web, and there is a real plaque on her in front of the church. I first heard about her yesterday on the Joe Madison Show on Sirius' Urban View, as yesterday marked her birth in 1783.
