20th June (1938) in Dalit History – Guru Nanak Khalsa college, Mumbai, brainchild of Dr. Ambedkar was founded

Guru Nanak Khalsa college was the brainchild of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, who wanted to set up a centre or an institute in Bombay for higher education. In 1935 he put forth this proposal of establishing an educational institution for higher education in Bombay to the Sikh religious leaders at Amritsar. The Sikh leaders agreed upon this idea with their main objective of providing good quality of higher education and also to popularize Sikh culture in a non-Sikh State. Thus in 1937, G. N. Khalsa College was born in a plot where the college stands today, with the total area of 27, 642 sq. yards. (Wikipedia)
