HACK #2 — Martin Luther King JR and John F Kennedy at SDSU?!

So this post is late because I did not have time to post it before, but on February 12, one of my friends from the Bay Area came down here for a tour of SDSU. After finishing class, I jumped into the tour. Prior to coming to SDSU, I did not go on a tour, so I was really interested at what the tour guide was saying. When we got to the Viejas Arena, he told us something that I thought was VERY interesting. He told us that in the Aztec Bowl (next to the Viejas), President John F. Kennedy gave a commencement speech! And he also mentioned that if we didn’t believe him, there was a plaque that said JFK actually did give a speech in the Aztec Bowl. Then when we passed the Cal Coast Amphitheater, our tour guide said that Martin Luther King Jr. gave a speech in there! I was really surprised and interested. I found out that MLKJR gave a speech the year after JFK did. Attached is a picture of my friend and I on the tour and the two links are information on the two speeches.
