My previous entry regarding ‘Revrum’ Je$$e Jack$son mentioned his false comments about his whereabouts when Dr. Martin Luther King was murdered. That got me thinking about the credentials of Dr. King.
This is what I discovered:
Martin Luther attended segregated public schools in Georgia, graduating from high school at the age of fifteen; he received the B. A. degree in 1948 from Morehouse College, a distinguished Negro institution of Atlanta from which both his father and grandfather had been graduated.
After three years of theological study at Crozer Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania where he was elected president of a predominantly white senior class, he was awarded the B.D. in 1951.
With a fellowship won at Crozer, he enrolled in graduate studies at Boston University, completing his residence for the doctorate in 1953 and receiving the degree in 1955 in Boston.
Wow! There doesn’t seem to be any question about Dr. King’s educational background. He held several degrees and even won the Nobel Peace Prize.
Al Sharpton and Je$$e Jack$on are unworthy imitations of Dr. King.
