Teaching The life and works of Martin Luther King, Jr.

The life and works of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King, Jr. graduated from Morehouse College in 1948. He had focused on studies in medicine and law, but during his senior year, he decided to enter ministry. This was at his father’s urging, as both his father and grandfather had been ministers. At Morehouse, King’s mentor had been the college’s president, Benjamin Mays. Mays was a social gospel activist committed to fighting racial inequality.
