“Amazing Grace” is an adaptation by Shay Youngblood from the book by Mary Hoffman.  The story follows Grace, a girl who loved stories.  Empowered by the strength of her imagination and the love of her mother and Nana, this dramatic, creative girl constantly adopts roles and identities such as:  Joan of Arc, Anansi the Spider, Hiawatha, Mowgli and many more. 


When her class plans a presentation of “Peter Pan,” “Grace knew who she wanted to be.  She holds fast despite her classmates’ demurrals that she can’t be Peter Pan because she is a girl and because she is black.  In the end, Grace shows that she can indeed do anything she sets her mind to.
