Dr. King’s Visit to Saint Peter’s
According to an account in the Pauw Wow, Dr. King spoke against segregation and violence, and despite setbacks in the civil rights movement, King expressed optimism. “Although some will be scared, lose jobs and be called bad names, our problems will be solved,” King said. “We shall overcome.”
Now, on September 22, 2015, Saint Peter’s University remembers and celebrates the 50th Anniversary of this momentous occasion.
