Rev. Steve Miller is Project Director and Founder of the HBCU Truth & Reconciliation Oral History Project and the United States Christian Leadership Organization, a comprehensive Christian-based educational and humanitarian organization dedicated to achieving racial equality through spreading the love of Christ and building relationships across ethnic lines in order to promote more lasting and authentic spiritual and social change. He believes there are more than enough laws written on the books, just not enough written on our hearts, and it is through a changed heart, not laws, that will ultimately bring God’s Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
Miller is a humanitarian working in human rights in the State of Texas and beyond for ten years with his work resulting in Federal civil rights investigations by the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights and the United States Department of Justice’s Community Services Division, primarily, within the Texas educational system. His work has brought increased equity to hiring processes, enlarged job opportunities, and fostered greater understanding of institutional bias in education through education. He has coordinated and won legal actions at the Federal court level and has been the stimulus of rewrites of discipline policies, whose ends resulted in fewer loved ones of color being exposed to and caught in the educational system’s disciplinary apparatus, which correlates highly with elevated juvenile justice levels and mass incarceration rates.
Miller holds a B.S. in Political Science from Texas A&M University; a B.S. in Finance from the University of Houston; a Master’s in Commercial Real Estate Development through the Graduate School of Finance at Mays Business School, Texas A&M University; and a Master’s of Divinity from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Austin, TX. He is the author of a comprehensive multi-year Christ-centered spiritual, educational, operational, philosophical, and intellectual blueprint to advance racial reconciliation through discussion, analysis, and relationship building. He is a husband of 20 years and a father of two.
