Howard Thurman

“At the core of life is a hard purposefulness, a determination to live.”

– Howard Thurman

Howard Thurman has been on my mind of late. Thurman was born in 1899 in Florida and later was a religious leader at Howard University’s Rankin Chapel and at Boston University (where he was the first Black Dean of the Chapel). Thurman was a proponent of liberation theology and he is widely credited with establishing the first multiracial church in the U.S. You can learn more about Howard Thurman here.
