AmazingGracePicforContest.jpgThe film “Amazing Grace”–which was released on DVD yesterday–tells the story of William Wilberforce, who led the successful effort to abolish slavery in 18th-century Britain. He was inspired by a former slave trader who wrote the widely known hymn.
To celebrate the release of the film, Beliefnet is giving away 10 copies of the DVD.
