Giving, sharing, and loving make Christmas a holy time. This landmark collection of African-American Christmas stories celebrates the true meaning of our most loved holiday. As each story unfolds we are offered a gift. In "The Christmas Reunion Down at Martinsville," by Augustus M. Hodges, you will-be overwhelmed with warm feelings as you read about a man torn away from his beloved by a slaveowner and then reunited with her forever on Christmas Day. Tears come when we read Alice Moore Dunbar-Nelson's "The Children's Christmas," a tale of a poor, nearly blind little girl admiring toys she can never have. We suffer her pain as we remember that Christmas is a time to count our blessings. In "Christmas Eve Story" we read of a childless woman's life that is magically changed when a policeman brings two young orphans in need of a home to her door, and we realize there are many kinds of Christmas gifts.
