Product Description

The crux of this book is the author's analysis of intergener- ational transmission of spiritual values as depicted in selected African-American women's literature written since 1960 (gospel music, poems, novels, short stories, and auto- biography). 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 called from the author's own life experience and religious beliefs.

Publisher's Description

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.

Author Bio

Teresa L. Fry Brown is Associate Professor of Homiletics and Director of Black Church Studies at Candler School of Theology, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia. She is an ordained minister in the African Methodist Episcopal Church and holds a Ph.D. in Religion and Social Transformation.
