In a voice of prophetic inspiration, Beyond Greens and Cornbread joins that traditional chorus of poetry, sermon, and song to communicate the messages of African American hopes and dreams, virtues and vices, aspirations and inspirations, calling Christians of every race and ethnicity to move beyond our past challenges and even beyond our present traditions into a vision of hope and expectancy for the future.
