Michael Campbell: Forgotten Adventist Women - Ashville AF

Saturday, September 24, 2022 - 12:00pm

Michael Campbell will present: "Recovering Stories of Forgotten Women from our Adventist Past." 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Campbell spent a year identifying one woman a week whose stories were either forgotten or unknown from our Adventist past. This led to a much larger project to seek to recover these stories. At times I have been challenged, if women were so vital in our early Adventist history, then why don't we know more of these stories? I often respond that it is simply because those stories haven't been told. This presentation takes a look at the wide and varied contributions of women by revealing stories about the important contributions of women that have been forgotten or overlooked in Adventist historiography.
