Rededication of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Oak Tree, State House Grounds, Annapolis, MD

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered a commencement address at Morgan State College on June 2, 1958 that had gone unnoticed by scholars for nearly 50 years. His words from that day were recovered from the pages of the June 7, 1958 Baltimore Late City and Washington DC editions of the Baltimore Afro-American, and used for a new plaque at the memorial oak tree on the Maryland State House grounds in February 28, 2007
