Martin Luther King, Jr. 1967 “Beyond Vietnam” - In Memoriam -

In Memorium -
January 15, 1929 - April 4, 1968

Two of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s most famous speeches are “I have a dream” and “We will get to the Promised Land”.  These speeches have been analyzed and memorized.

But the speech he gave at the Riverside church, “Beyond Vietnam”, urging non-violent reconciliation in a time of war and a renewed commitment to economic and social justice, is the one that has the most to teach us today.

This Call to Consciousness features dozens of his supporters and shows the dangerous period at the time MLK, Jr. gave this speech April 4, 1967 at the Riverside Church, New York City.

His entire speech can be found here:

Martin Luther King, Jr., born January 15, 1929, was assassinated April 4, 1968 in Memphis, exactly one year to the day after this speech. He was 39 at the time of his death.
