Dr. Martin Luther King's 1965 Commencement Speech at Antioch College
In 1965 Dr, Martin Luther King gave the commencement speech at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Ten year-old Jalyn Jones Roe was there and that day changed her life. Roe's story will be heard as WYSO public radio presents Dr. King's address, in its entirety.
Roe lives in Yellow Springs today, and works with "The Springfield Community Empowerment Program," a faith based organization that works with at-risk youth and the disadvantaged in Springfield. Her work today, she believes, comes from the community values of diversity and inclusion that she learned in Yellow Springs
