Benjamin Elijah Mays, Schoolmaster of the Movement

University of North Carolina Press

During his tenure as president of Morehouse College, Mays constantly recited to his students a poem titled “God's Minute.” He consistently encouraged his students to use time wisely because time was fleeting. Throughout the 1950s, Mays used his own “minute” to promote his Christian vision of American society and continued to build the institutional infrastructure of theological education for the black clergy.
