Benjamin Mays — Martin Luther King, Jr.

On The Panel tonight, George talks with Raoul Bhaneja and Susan Coyne — of the new CBC comedy Best Laid Plans — and Pat Thornton about mentoring, and who they turn to for guidance. Which got us thinking about some of the great mentor-mentee relationships we've heard about in the red chair and beyond. Check out some of these stories in the gallery above, starting with the man who helped guide Martin Luther King, Jr. in university — and ultimately delivered his eulogy.

Tune into George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight at 7 p.m. on CBC TV to catch the panel.
