Jazma earned a B.A. in Africana Studies and History at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, a M.A. in U.S. History at Indiana University Bloomington and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in U.S. History with a minor in Gender Studies at IUB. Her dissertation explores the origins and development of Indiana’s rural free black communities, the gendered experiences of freedom, and free and self-liberated black women’s roles in the Underground Railroad and Anti-Slavery Movement. Jazma recently led a CRRES sponsored History Harvest involving descendants of the Greenville community she studies in Randolph County, Indiana and Darke County, Ohio and is working to transform their historical artifacts and oral histories into a digital archive.
