Summary

We live in a leadership crisis. In an age when incompatible worlds collide and when scandals rock formerly stable institutions, says Walter Fluker, what counts most is ethical leadership and the qualities of personal integrity, spiritual discipline, intellectual openness, and moral anchoring that Fluker finds exemplified in the work and thought of black-church giants Martin Luther King Jr. and Howard Thurman.

Author Biography

Walter Earl Fluker is Executive Director of the Leadership Center at Morehouse College, Atlanta; the Coca-Cola Professor of Leadership Studies there; editor of the Howard Thurman Papers Project; and founder of Vision Quest International.
