Historical List of the Howard Thurman Convocation & Awardees
Each year, The Church for The Fellowship of All Peoples celebrates its anniversary by convening the Howard Thurman Convocation. The convocation was established after our 50th Anniversary as a way of annually coming together to reflect upon the extraordinary life and work of Dr. Howard Thurman. It also serves to recall us to our highest resolve, to remind us of our beginnings as an incubator and on‐going expression of beloved community in the midst of great challenges.
*Designates a recipient of the Howard Thurman Award which is given in recognition of an individual who embodies the life and legacy of Dr. Thurman.
