Grace Abounding

The Core Knowledge Anthology of African-American Literature, Music, and Art




Why Grace Abounding?

Too often, the astonishingly rich legacy of African-American literature has been glossed over in summary treatments in 11th-grade American literature survey courses. Too often, the equally rich legacies of African-American music and art have been ignored altogether by schools or, at best, relegated to special events for Black History Month.

Now, at last, this can all change due to the publication of a definitive text and resource book on African-American cultural heritage, published by the nonprofit, nonpartisan Core Knowledge Foundation. Vetted by leading figures in African-American studies, this new work has lofty goals – to enable African-American students to view their cultural heritage from its roots in Africa to the present day and to help all students to appreciate and understand the seminal works of the creative geniuses of that heritage.
