Howard Thurman Papers Project

Founded in 1992, the mission of the Howard Thurman Papers Project is to preserve and promote Thurman’s vast documentary record, which spans 63 years and consists of approximately 58,000 items of correspondence, sermons, unpublished writings, and speeches. To achieve this mission, the Project has four goals: 1) the publication of a multi-volume documentary edition of Thurman’s works; 2) creating an online database of Thurman’s papers that will be accessible to scholars and the general public; 3) conducting interviews (as part of an oral history project) of Thurman’s colleagues, close associates, and public figures who have been influenced by his work; and 4) creating public education programs about Thurman’s legacy, particularly as it relates to spirituality, ethics, and leadership.
