If we are not careful, our colleges will produce a group of close-minded, unscientific, illogical propagandists, consumed with immoral acts. Be careful, brethren! Be careful, teachers!

This is the source of the schizophrenia that the South will suffer until it goes through its crisis of conscience. Martin Luther King, Jr.
