Twenty-Seven Years of Success and Failure at Morehouse


Benjamin E. Mays


I will always remember the first time I met Dr. Benjamin Mays. It was an experience that I will always remember. I had the pleasure of meeting him during a wedding reception several years after his retirement as Presi­dent of Morehouse College. Unfortunately, I matriculated at Morehouse College the year after Dr. Mays retired and did not have the opportunity of experiencing his mentoring firsthand. However, throughout my years at Morehouse, I developed a deep appreciation for Dr. Mays through his writ­ings and speeches. His works and ideology have had a profound  impact upon my life.
