George McLaurin, the first black man admitted to the University of Oklahoma in 1948, was forced to sit in a corner away from his white comrades. But his name remains on the honor roll as one of the university’s top three students.

These are his words: “Some colleagues looked at me like I was an animal, no one gave me a word, the teachers didn’t even seem to be there for me, and they didn’t always take my questions when I asked them. I devoted myself so much that afterwards they started looking for me to explain and clarify their questions. “

Like what, regardless of the obstacles, the barriers, if we are determined to succeed, we always succeed.
