How old was Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. when he entered college?
Answer: Martin Luther King Jr. was a Baptist minister and social activist who played a key role in the American civil rights movement. King was such a gifted student that he skipped two grades in high school, 9th and 12th before enrolling at Morehouse College at the age of 15.
Although he was the son, grandson and great-grandson of Baptist ministers, King did not intend to follow the family vocation until Morehouse president Benjamin E. Mays, a noted theologian, convinced him otherwise. King was ordained before graduating college with a degree in sociology
