20th Century Dialogues: A Revisit with Howard Thurman
Date:
Apr. 4, 1967
Description:
Apr. 4, 1967. Running time: 59:20. An interview with Howard Thurman over the topic of poverty and what it means to us. For Thurman, the focus is too often on the economic problem of poverty because it is more tangible and concrete. In America, poverty has a stigma of being a moral or personal disgrace rather than a material misfortune. Thurman argues we should foster a climate in which the individual is not victimized but rather affirmed as essential to society.
