Jan 02, Deidra rated it it was amazing I return to this book again and again. Nearly every word is highlighted or underlined. Whenever people ask me, "What should I read? Written decades ago, it remains a timeless classic for anyone trying to figure out how to love people on the margins, the people who thrive on the systems that create the margins, and everyone in between.

Mar 21, Elliot Ratzman rated it really liked it MLK traveled with this book in his bag; that may not be enough to recommend it, but it says muchKing traveled light. Howard Thurman was a family friend of the Kings. He was a poet, a mystic, a chaplain at Howard and BU and fellow traveler of Gandhian pacificism. In India, Thurman was challenged: how can blacks still abide by the religion of their oppressors? Isnt their Christianity treason to the colonized colored people the world over?

Thurmans response is this powerful text. Though nurtured MLK traveled with this book in his bag; that may not be enough to recommend it, but it says much—King traveled light. I learned about it from a video in the Freedom Theater at the Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco-- there is a cameo appearance in the film by Senator Barack Obama Note that the film was produced in before the election announcement by Obama.

It is said that Dr. MLK, Jr. Thurman was Dr. Before Dr. King knew of Ghandi, Dr. Thurman was in India, learning from the man himself! Thurman speaks of Jesus as a man-- of flesh and blood. Howard Thurman references the ghetto and how people on the periphery of society, the Disinherited, are constantly standing with their backs up against the wall. This man is genius, because he says that people who are trapped with their backs up against the wall should use the teachings of Jesus to elevate their situation.

Note, that I am not a Christian. We are dealing here with conditions that produce essentially the same psychology. There is meant no further comparison. It is the similarity of a social climate at the point of a denial of full citizenship which creates the problem for creative survival. For the most part, Negroes assume that there are no basic citizenship rights, no fundamental protection, guaranteed to them by the state, because their status as citizens has never been clearly defined.

There has been for them little protection from the dominant controllers of society and even less protection from the unrestrained elements within their own group

It is the only true guide you will ever have. There is nothing new or recent about fear—it is doubtless as old as the life of man on the planet. Fears are of many kinds—fear of objects, fear of people, fear of the future, fear of nature, fear of the unknown, fear of old age, fear of disease, and fear of life itself. Then there is fear which has to do with aspects of experience and detailed states of mind. The ever-present fear that besets the vast poor, the economically and socially insecure, is a fear of still a different breed. It is a climate closing in; it is like the fog in San Francisco or in London. It is nowhere in particular yet everywhere.
