Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence
That was the title of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous speech at the Riverside Church in April 1967. It was exactly 40 years ago, yet Dr. King’s speech is more relevant and timely with each passing day. You can find it reprinted here. Even reading just a few paragraphs of this timeless gem is enough to see how Dr. King spoke the truth so eloquently, and appealed directly to the listener’s sense of what’s decent and right.
