ABSTRACT
The article relates the discrimination faced by African American Ben Templeton, a boarder and friend of the Rankin family, at Ripley College in Ohio. Presbyterian Church leaders at Chillicothe agreed to sponsor a part of his tuition expenses on the condition that he would study for the ministry. The assault against Templeton resulted to discussion of whether minority students should be allowed at the school. The student decided to drop out from college to prevent the emergence of other problems that may arise from his stay.
