With Head and Heart: The Autobiography of Howard Thurman.
Autobiography of Howard Thurman (1899?–1981), theologian, educator, author, and civil rights mentor. Thurman taught at Howard University and worked behind the scenes with many important members of the early modern civil rights movement including Mary McLeod Bethune, Nannie Helen Burroughs, and A. Philip Randolph. “In 1953 Life magazine characterized Thurman as one of the twelve greatest preachers of the twentieth century.
