Berkman became a pre-med at Cornell University in the mid 1960s, as the social movements of the 1960s swirled around him. He became a football player, president of his fraternity, and focused on getting into medical school, not radical politics. He got into every medical school he applied to and won major scholarships. A lecture by Black Power advocate Stokley Carmichael during his last semester in college, however, made him begin to question his place and role in the world.
