Verity Records is pleased to present The Covenant, a collector's musical companion piece to the best-selling book by Tavis Smiley. The tracks were tirelessly chosen to accompany the book's chapters and primary premise, and feature many of the most beloved gospel music artists of our day. The chapters consist of the Top 10 greatest concerns that are fundamental to everyone, but more specifically the African American community's day-to-day existence.
The Covenant, a New York Times nonfiction best seller, is a declaration of the State of the African America Union whose origins go back to 2000 with Tavis Smiley's annual "State of Black Union" symposiums. These gatherings hosted by Tavis have attracted a who's who of the most prominent African Americans. Some of those who have participated in the past have included the late Coretta Scott King, TD Jakes, Danny Glover, Harry Belafonte, Tom Joyner, Bishop Eddie L. Long, Reverend Jesse L. Jackson, Sr., AARP President Marie F. Smith, Congressman John Conyers, Jr. and Congresswoman Maxine Waters, to name a few.
