We the oppressed, instead of (learning) by the mistakes of the oppressors,

have fallen victim of the philosophy of the oppressors. This practice is deep within the fiber of the local community and its advocates are increasing daily. This brings us next to the question of the task of Christian Leaders for Education in the local community In other words, what type of leaders are needed to face these perplexing problems which are found in the local community? In the face of these problems what type of leaders are needed to put over a worthwhile educational program in the community? — MLK, “The Task of Christian Leadership Training for Education in the Local Community,” 1955
