Howard Thurman was a philosopher and theologian who helped shape the twentieth century through his vision of social justice, rooted in reconciliation and love, and in his mentoring of Civil Rights leaders like James Farmer, Vernon Jordan, and Martin Luther King Jr. Thurman worked, theoretically and practically, in search of common ground by deepening relationships and promoting non-violent political action in the face of stark social, racial, and class divisions.
In light of his legacy, Upper House is delighted to host a dynamic two-day conference that reanimates Thurman’s remarkable contribution, through lectures, breakout discussions, and times of contemplative reflection. We look forward to gathering from April 26-27, 2018, to explore the depth and breadth of a legacy that held a light toward community, rooted in the universal pursuit of justice.
