The Howard Thurman Papers Project, in conjunction with Stanford University, is a Digital Publication Grant Winner from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, for the Project Modern African American Freedom Struggle Digital Publishing Cooperative. The Project is on a team working with Stanford University to build a sustainable system for the digital publication and discovery of historical records. This cooperative brings together three long-standing documentary editing projects: The Martin Luther King, Jr., Papers Project, the Papers of Clarence Mitchell, Jr. and of the NAACP Washington Bureau, and the Howard Thurman Papers Project, with the help of Stanford University Libraries, to plan a digital publication platform centered around collaborative thematic digital archives in modern African American history.

“[Dr.] Walter Fluker and I look forward to collaborating on this project throughout 2018 as we continue to bring more recognition to the work of the Howard Thurman Papers Project and the School of Theology,” says Managing Editor and Associate Director of the Howard Thurman Papers Project, Silvia Glick.
