Remembering MLK: Beyond Vietnam

Some friends of mine held an event on April 4 to commemorate the anniversary of Martin Luther King’s powerful speech at the Riverside Church in New York on April 4, 1967, exactly one year before his assassination.   In that speech Dr. King makes a powerful connection between racism and war.   Kings’ clear vision lit a new path for us but  we were not ready to follow.  Now it is more relevant than ever.

In this video, you can listen to my friends in Binghamton recite the portion of the speech where Dr King explains why we should oppose the Vietnam war.
