REGISTRATION REQUIRED – All book discussion sign-ups announced at the beginning of the semester

  • JESUS AND THE DISINHERITED by Howard Thurman
  • Discussion Leader: Dr. Carolyn Medine, Professor of Religion and Director of the Institute for African American Studies
  • Date: Tuesday, November 1, 6-8 p.m.
  • Location: Moore Hall 116
  • Description: Famously known as the text that Martin Luther King Jr. sought inspiration from in the days leading up to the Montgomery bus boycott, Howard Thurman’s Jesus and the Disinherited helped shape the civil rights movement. In this classic treatise, the acclaimed theologian and religious leader Howard Thurman (1900-1981) offers an interpretation of the teachings of Jesus, framed through the experience of the oppressed. Developed from a series of lectures that Thurman presented during the Mary L. Smith Memorial Lectures at Samuel Huston College in 1948, Jesus and the Disinherited discusses nonviolent responses to oppression and the relationship between the tenets of Christianity and the lives of the underprivileged.
