“Martin Luther King, Jr., attended seminary at Crozer, one of the schools of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School.

In his essay expressing his sense of call to the vocation of ministry, the young King said he did not have a story about a life-altering religious experience like so many other ministers reported, he simply felt compelled to serve humanity.”
