Stories matter for the work of justice, and yet it’s a complicated matter to tell the stories of people who committed their lives to building a better world. How can we tell their stories without resorting to hagiography (writing about saints and heroes)? And how can we remember the complexities of people, including their inevitable blindspots and shortcomings, and still learn from those who have gone before us? We’ll be wrestling with these questions throughout the month of May as we read Paul Harvey’s recent Howard Thurman and the Disinherited: A Religious Biography alongside other works of biography.
