Howard Thurman

Howard Washington Thurman (November 18, 1899 – April 10, 1981) was an influential African-American author, philosopher, theologian, educator, and civil rights leader. As a prominent religious figure, he played a leading role in many social justice movements and organizations of the twentieth century. Thurman's theology of radical nonviolence influenced and shaped a generation of civil rights activists, and he was a key mentor to leaders within the movement, including Martin Luther King, Jr.

Howard Thurman encourages us to do "what makes us come alive." But how can we act on this advice if we do not know what we want? If we have many voices inside us telling us what we want to do, but we don't know which voice to listen to? Perhaps Thurman's voice can help us find our own.
