Education Outpowers Weapons


He is George McLaurin the first b|ack man admitted to Oklahoma University in 1948, he was forced to sit in a corner away from his fellow wh!te men.

But his name remains on the honor list as one of the top three students in college.

These are his words:

”Some colleagues looked at me like I was an an!ma|, no one spoke to me, for teachers I didn’t even exist, they rarely answered my questions. I dedicated so much to myself, that after my teammates started looking for me and teachers started taking me into consideration. I stopped being invisible to them.”

Education has more power than weapons.
