Worth a link

I saw this on my Facebook feed, and thought it a good read. I had no idea the legendary Moses Fleetwood Walker, the first African-American to play Major League Baseball, was once a Yeoman (though, technically, he was a Yeoman before they were Yeomen). He attended school and played on the college’s first baseball team.

Still, it’s not as if it should have come as a surprise, as Oberlin was the first college in the country to admit students of all races back in 1837. It’s always been a leader in civil rights for all.

Oberlin’s past fits pretty damn well with Kiera’s future, I must say.

Anyway, it’s short, but informative.
