On September 22nd, 1965, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke at Saint Peter’s College and received an honorary degree from the College. The imperative to live the legacy of Dr. King is a constant challenge for those committed to justice at Saint Peter’s College. More specifically, how are we to do “justice” for our students, the majority of whom are poor, working class, non-white and a significant number of whom are first generation college students? Further, and as Dr. King instructed, how are we to educate our students not so much to climb economic ladder at the expense of others, but to work toward “restructuring a political and economic system that produces beggars”? This chapter questions the faculty, students and administrators of any college community regarding how to live in a way that puts “people before profit and property.”
