Howard Washington Thurman

One of the greatest ministers in American History passed to glory 37 years ago today on April 10, 1981, Howard Washington Thurman. Here is a sermon of his from 1961 in my voice, his words.

On April 16, 1961, Dr. Reverend Howard Thurman spoke at Boston University's Marsh Chapel on​ the topic "Community and Self" a powerful message of building one's self to produce accomplished results in one's community. I use the term dig deep, then dig deeper, to produce the you that can produce the change you want to see. If you have never read the words of Dr. Howard Thurman then you truly need to start a journey of understanding. The people that Howard Thurman influenced range from Dr. Martin Luther, James Farmer, Barbara Jordan, Jessie Jackson and so many other defenders of human rights in our country and around the world. So on this Sunday listen as I put my voice to Reverend Howard Thurman's words on The Blackman's Blog.
