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.
