“Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. graduated from a historically black college, Morehouse. The goal of these tours is to promote interest in local opportunities in higher education and provide students with a solid understanding of the history, culture, and traditions that have shaped each schools’ collective legacy, and a framework for comparison that will help them choose the right college,” says DuShun Scarbrough, Executive Director of the Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission. “The tour is also opened to nontraditional prospective students who have been thinking about college for quite some time, and now they’re ready to make a decision.”
