Description

Amazing Grace is a story about a little African-American girl named Grace, who goes on amazing adventures. Her class is putting on a play of Peter Pan, but her classmates say she can't play Peter Pan, either because she's a girl or because she's black. Her mother and grandmother tell her that she can be anything, and bring her to a ballet of Romeo and Juliet with a black woman as Juliet. Grace wins the role of Peter Pan, everyone congratulates her for doing so amazingly, and Grace learns she can do whatever she puts her mind to, regardless of who she is.
