Co-sponsored by Detroit DSA.
50th Anniversary reading of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s speech "Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence" -- King's great speech on war & peace, racism, & poverty. While Dr. King officially came out against the war in delivering this speech, he also looked beyond Vietnam to describe what might lead our country into future wars.
Dr. King delivered his powerful speech at Riverside Church in New York City before a standing room only crowd of 4,000 on April 4, 1967.
Rev. King's words were prophetic, providing a diagnosis on our society's gravest illnesses... "the giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism, and militarism" ...and a cure... "a true revolution of values."
16 readers will share Dr. King's speech from the historic pulpit of Detroit Central United Methodist Church where Dr. King preached several times
