‘In the presence of greatness’: Remembering Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1960 speech at UNC


As a UNC student in 1960, Oscar Brinson didn’t know much about Martin Luther King Jr. King, then 31, was still working his way to becoming the heralded civil rights leader we remember on the national holiday in his honor. But Brinson knew enough to be impressed. So when King came to Chapel Hill, Brinson made sure he was at Hill Hall for King's speech. (UNC.edu)
