Celebrate African American History Month with this annual collection of devotions. Each daily reading throughout the month of February provides a Scripture passage, an inspiring and encouraging meditation, and a prayer. These devotions increase a sense of knowledge and awareness of African American history, foster pride in that history, and strengthen personal and communal faith, hope, and commitment to a rich heritage and future. The African American History Month Daily Devotions is perfect for church Bible study, opening meditations for meetings and events, and personal use.
