Heart Full Of Grace

A Thousand Years Of Black Wisdom

Rich with sweetness and anger, strength and sorrow, Heart Full of Grace is a bounteous treasury of a thousand years of black wisdom.

Heart Full of Grace contains many powerful quotes from traditional African sources, as well as African American writers, political leaders, artists, sports heroes, and the anonymous slaves and soldiers who fought and sacrificed for freedom, their families, and the future. Their words offer inspiration, consolation, encouragement, and enlightenment.

Invaluable as a reference or as a rich mine of African American culture and history, Heart Full of Grace reflects a thousand years of struggle, strength, and triumph.
