Oberlin College

Why would you have any interest? Oberlin College was started in 1833 by a group of idealist young people, who believed in equality for all. So their university had a policy of providing the same education to female students, Black students, and poor students, as they provided to white male students with enough money to pay high fees. This was at a time when the mainstream of society believed that women could not learn, and Black people should not be allowed to learn to read and write. So at Oberlin College, the Black students were taught to the same high standard as the white students. And they were encouraged to go out into the world to teach more Black people. (Oberlin College, Ohio was in the vanguard of the abolitionist movement to end slavery)
