Dr. Howard Thurman was a philosopher, theologian, educator, reformer, and author of more than 20 books. He championed Gandhi's nonviolent methods in the West and inspired many in the American struggle for Civil Rights, justice, and freedom. Thurman's life and work reveal the powerful synergy between mystic spirituality and social engagement, the inseparability of personal and social transformation.
