The Inspirational Life of Jane Edna Hunter

Jane Edna Harris Hunter was the daughter of a former slave and was born in a slave cabin on the Woodburn Farm in historic Pendleton, South Carolina on December 13, 1882. During her amazing life, she earned her nursing degree, law degree, founded the Phillis Wheatley Association and the National Phillis Wheatley Foundation in Cleveland, Ohio and was a Social Activist and a Millionaire. She also published her autobiography, A Nickel and A Prayer, which is sold below.

Note: The information on this page was gathered from various websites which are listed below as well as a power point presentation given by Dr. Rhondda Thomas of Clemson University and conversations with Pendleton Historic Foundation Board Member, Carol Burdette and The Jane Edna Hunter Project of Clemson University.

Fearless Trailer - The Jane Edna Hunter Documentary Coming Soon, We Hope!

This documentary is going to be wonderful and I hope the necessary funding will soon be raised.

A Nickel and A Prayer - Autobiography of Jane Edna Hunter

This book was out of print but thanks to the hard work of Dr. Rhondda Thomas and her Creative Inquiry Class at Clemson University, it is once again available and now contains a new final chapter. Publishing this book was one of the first accomplishments of the Jane Edna Hunter project and the Creative Inquiry Class. There are plans to create a full length documentary also.

A Nickel and a Prayer (Regenerations)
A Nickel and a Prayer (Regenerations)

This autobiography details the obstacles that Jane Edna Hunter had to overcome to accomplish what she did as a prominent African American. Jane Edna Hunter was born in Pendleton SC and moved to Cleveland, Ohio where she started the Phillis Wheatley Association and was a well known social activist. Jane first published her autobiography in 1940.I downloaded this book to my Kindle and have to say that I really enjoyed reading it. I have always enjoyed reading autobiographies especially if the person has achieved success after overcoming obstacles. This story is inspiring on so many levels. Jane Edna Hunter was a woman way ahead of her time and determined to make a difference in this world.

Jane's Early Life Began In A Cabin

According to a Power Point Presentation that was given by Dr. Thomas at the Martin Luther King Jr. Prayer Breakfast in Anderson SC on January 18, 2013:

Jane Edna Hunter was the daughter of Edward and Harriet Millner Harris and was born in December 1882. Jane's father died when she was only 10 years old. Jane's mother sent her off to do domestic work with only a grade school education. Jane was later allowed to complete her education at the Williams and Ferguson Academy, a boarding school for African American children in Abbeville, SC. She graduated Ferguson and Williams College and found a job as a domestic in Abbeville. Her mother forced her to marry a man 40 years older than she. This marriage only lasted one year and although Jane kept her husband's name, "Hunter", she separated from him which was basically unheard of during this time. She moved to Charleston and worked for Attorney Benjamin Rutledge, Jr. in his home on the battery. After receiving her nursing degree in Virginia, she moved to Cleveland, Ohio in 1905.

Reproduction of the Harris Cabin by Carol Burdette:The cabin that Jane was born in and lived in during her early years had deteriorated and was torn down but in the mid 2000's the Pendleton Historic Foundation who owns Woodburn decided that it was important in the interpretation of history to build a replica of Jane's birth cabin. After much research by Dr. Rhondda Thomas and her Creative Inquiry Class at Clemson University, the cabin was dedicated in 2008.

The Meaning of Prayer (Classic Reprint)
The Meaning of Prayer (Classic Reprint)

Like Jane Edna Hunter, I believe in the power of prayer. I think I will order this book also.

 

This Book Meant A Lot To Jane Edna Hunter - The Meaning of Prayer by Dr. Fosdick

When reading Jane's Autobiography, her faith really shined through and she expressed the importance of this book to her. Of course, I had to look it up once I read what she had to say about it. I always like to read the "Reader Reviews" on Amazon and in doing so I learned that she definitely was not the only one who treasured this book. It was first published in 1915 and is now available as a reprinted version.

Jane Moves To Cleveland in 1905

According to Dr. Thomas's Power Point Presentation previously cited:Jane found many of the same obstacles that she had experienced in SC when she moved to Cleveland in 1905. She had difficulty finding work as a nurse, could not find affordable housing or suitable recreation. She was finally hired as a private duty nurse for prominent families in Cleveland and even worked in a home on Millionaire's Row.On June 4, 1910, Jane's mother passed away unexpectedly and Jane became very depressed and even considered suicide. On a train ride, she felt called to devote her life to helping young African American Southern women who reminded her of her mother. She became determined to find a way to provide adequate affordable housing for young girls as well as recreation. Through many trials and tribulations, Jane was able to accomplish that and much more.According to Dr. Thomas, the association outgrew their place at the Winona Apartments and had served more than 10,000 women by 1920. Jane started a $600,000 capital campaign for a new building and summer camp. She completed law school at the Baldwin-Wallace Law School in Berea, Ohio and passed the Ohio Bar in 1925. John D. Rockefeller contributed $100,000 to the capital campaign for the Phillis Wheatley Association building on East 46th Street and Cedar Avenue which was completed in 1927. Jane continued to be very active in the association and became a millionaire by investing wisely in the stock market. Instead of enjoying her money herself, she established The National Phillis Wheatley Foundation awarding needs-based college scholarships to women born in South Carolina or Ohio. Jane Edna Hunter died in 1971 in Cleveland after suffering from Alzheimer's Disease and is buried at Lake View Cemetery in Cleveland.

Why Did Jane Change the Name to The Phillis Wheatley Association?

Why did she title her book "A Nickel and A Prayer"?

In 1911, Jane asked seven of her girlfriends to meet each week and give a nickel and say a prayer for the success of their newly founded Working Girls' Home Association. Dr. Thomas explains that the association's name was later changed to The Phillis Wheatley Association in honor of the first African American writer to publish a book and earn a living from her writing. Phillis Wheatley was born around 1753 in Gambia, Africa and sold as a slave to the Wheatley family in Boston in 1761. She was given her first name for the ship that carried her to America, The Phillis.The association's first year's rent was paid in full by the founder of the Sherwin-Williams Paint Company, Henry Sherwin, and was first located at 2265 East 40th Street as a home for girls. They also assisted young women in finding jobs and later served meals and provided recreation.

Jane Edna Hunter Project

Clemson University's Creative Inquiry Class Project - by Dr. Rhondda Robinson Thomas Department of English Clemson University

Dr. Thomas first became interested in the life of Jane Edna Hunter after reading her autobiography, A Nickel and a Prayer. She felt like more people needed to be made aware of this inspirational story and was further motivated to do something about it when she realized that the book was no longer in print. Dr. Thomas wrote a proposal to develop a Creative Inquiry Class to do further research on Jane Edna Hunter. Her proposal was approved and their first project was to publish an edited and annotated edition of the autobiography. They have plans for a full length documentary, a Jane Edna Hunter Club at Pendleton Elementary School and a Jane E Hunter Walking Trail at Woodburn Historic Home.

Jane Edna Hunter and Clemson University - The Creative Inquiry Class went to Cleveland to do research

I learned a great deal in reading this piece. It is well written and extremely informative. Jane Edna Hunter is a heroine that I was/am unfamiliar with. But I am very intrigued by her history. And Phyllis Wheatley...from the Gambia? That is pretty amazing...I want to know more about her as well. From an entirely different perspective. History of our country and a particular race or creed is essential and critical in understanding how things evolve to get us to a particular place and time. And it is so vastly ignored these days by youth...and others who can care less...but we must do what you all are doing...we must preserve the history and plant a seed of knowledge and inspiration that will guide us to do the very thing and share the past lives of those who spearheaded a great movement and whose story should be told. I like the suggested reading as well and plan to explore those works too. Thank you for sharing this story.
