African American Women Handing on Spiritual Values
  • By Teresa L. Fry Brown
$20.99
($23.99)
Countering dire pronouncements of the irrelevance of African American institutions, Teresa L. Fry Brown celebrates the way African American women continue, often invisibly, the task of passing on moral wisdom in African-American families, churches, and communities.

The book begins with the author’s analysis of intergenerational transmission of spiritual values as depicted in selected African American women’s literature written since 1960 (gospel music, poems, novels, short stories, and autobiography). An interpretive framework is grounded in three ethical presuppositions based on traditional African American spiritual values, African American Theology and Ethics, Womanist Christology and Ethics, and values culled from the author’s own experience and religious beliefs.
