Martin Luther King, Jr., at Oberlin

(Oberlin College Archives)

Commencement 1965: Rev. Dr. King with fellow Honorary Degree recipient Leona Baumgartner (honorary degree of Doctor of Laws).

"...As I noticed these conditions [in India, after a recent visit], something within me cried out, 'Can we in America stand idly by and not be concerned?' And an answer came, 'Oh, no! Because the destiny of the United States is tied up with the destiny of India and every other nation.'"
