Publisher's description

"Although belief in divine messengers and guardians is certainly not limited to people of European heritage, angel books thus far have worn distinctly Euro-American faces. To help correct this imbalance, Ebony Angels presents prose excerpts and poetry from such prominent African-American figures as Maya Angelou, Martin Luther King, Jr., W.E.B. DuBois, Langston Hughes, Bessie Smith, and others" (publisher's description; WorldCat).
