Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered a piercing speech to the students at Glenville High School during a historic visit on April 26, 1967.

He started his speech by saying, “I never feel like a stranger when I come to Cleveland.”

He said he had many friends and acquaintances in Cleveland that are always welcoming him. He used the platform to address the problems across the country that were affecting all communities.

Dr. King, Jr. related to the students and faculty by talking about his times growing up. He said he attended a school with 7,000 children. He blamed his difficulty with reading on the overcrowded school.
