The visits to Yale by Martin Luther King, Jr. (1959 and 1964) and Coretta Scott King (1969) are documented in Manuscripts and Archives in the Yale Library. Dr. King was invited to Yale in 1959 by an undergraduate lecture committee and spoke on “The Future of Integration.” He returned to Yale in 1964 to receive an honorary degree, along with Averell Harriman, Philip Jessup, Sargent Shriver Jr, Alfred Lunt, and Lynn Fontanne. Dr. King was released on bail from the St. Augustine, Florida jail, just two days before receiving the degree from Yale.
