Two things I love…together!

On my list of things I love are history and music, and as in the video below, there is one song that will stand out far above all others (and I could certainly blog about comparing this song to, for example, much of today’s contemporary Christian music, but that’s for another time): Amazing Grace.

An amazing lesson in the history of the Black Spirituals, and how that music affected the (white) man who wrote the words to Amazing Grace…and more importantly, a lesson on how we are all connected…

  • thanks for posting this clip. I am going to use it in my African American History class when we talk about John Newton and the slave ship.

  • It's an awesome message, not only about the song, but the redemption that inspired it.
