by Bettye Collier-Thomas




Henry Holt & Co (1997)


"Giving, sharing, and loving make Christmas a holy time. This landmark collection of African-American Christmas stories celebrates the true meaning of our most loved holiday." "Enchanting and heartwarming, these stories tell us about black people's lives during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, revealing hope, faith, and the joy of community - which sustained us then and sustain us still. First published in literary journals and black-owned newspapers, these stories are written by political leaders, activists, and visionaries, among them Ida B. Wells Barnett, T. Thomas Fortune, and Fannie Barrier Williams. Offering spiritual uplift, their words come straight from a profound and rich storytelling heritage."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
