This book is the intriguing story of the development of religious publishing in the African American context. It examines R.H. Boyd's seminal dream of providing Christian education literature for former slaves and their families in an attempt to fulfill God's call on his life and the desire to close the educational gap that existed in the African American community. The story covers four generations of leadership that have resulted in three one-hundred-year-old institutions that work together to elevate Black life in America: R.H. Boyd Publishing Corporation/National Baptist Publishing Board, Citizens Bank, National Baptist Congress.
