Martin Luther King, Jr., at Oberlin

(Oberlin College Archives)

Commencement 1965: Rev. Dr. King, along with Andrew Young [on the left], greet visitors and parents.

"One of the great liabilities of history is that there are all too many people who find themselves in some great period of social change, and yet they fail to achieve the new mental attitudes, the new mental outlooks that the new situation demands. There is nothing more tragic than to sleep through a revolution."
