Celebrating The Birth Of Howard Thurman, A Spiritual Icon
“Keep alive the dream; for as long as a man has a dream in his heart, he cannot lose the significance of living.”
“Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
“A man is a man, no more, no less. The awareness of this fact marks the supreme moment of human dignity.”
Dr. Howard Thurman was born on November 18, 1900, he was the embodiment of spiritual greatness. Today I read from a document I secured online from the Morehouse College archives, Howard Thurman and Martin Luther King, At The Intersection Where Worlds Collide. Dr. Thurman had a profound effect on Martin Luther King Jr. especially following his near-death experience in Harlem in 1958. Join The Black Blogger as I share this powerful reading which I believe was a forward of the book Where Worlds Collide. It seems that men like Howard Thurman now are few and far between but in order for our communities to fully prosper we need the words of Dr. Thurman to continue educate today’s and tomorrow’s black leaders. Just as Dr. Thurman challenged Martin Luther King to stretch his philosophy towards justice for all. His. Words can provide that same directive thought to others.
