MLK at ONU

Relive Dr. King’s historic visit to campus 50 years ago

It’s been 50 years since Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stepped foot onto the campus of Ohio Northern University to speak in front of students, staff and faculty on Jan. 11, 1968. It was one of his final public appearances before his untimely death, and it’s a memory that is forever embedded into Ohio Northern’s rich history.

Relive this historic event here through ONU’s nostalgic recollections, including the chapel program, photos, audio recording, speech transcript and oral history from those who were there.
