Howard Thurman's Great Hope

Howard Thurman's Great Hope

Howard Thurman's Great Hope

BY KAI JACKSON ISSA

Brief Description:
Born into segregated Florida in 1899, young Howard Thurman worked hard to help support his family, but he also loved school, reading and learning, and dreamed of honoring his late father s wish that he could attend college. With the support of friends and family, young Howard transcended the limits on Negro education and earned a scholarship to an out-of-town high school, through his own hard work and the generosity of a stranger. A moving testament to the bonds of community and the power of faith, this book shows the early life of the man who became a seminal civil rights leader and an inspirational religious thinker. Grades 2-4, full color illustrations.
