Named after a national icon who promoted the idea that out of religious faith emerges social responsibility, the Howard Thurman Center for Justice and Transformational Ministry expands efforts to create social change by empowering change agents who can become effective advocates for their own communities. It is the home of the Black Ministries Program, which began in 1982.
