A Time to Break Silence: Public Reading of Martin Luther King’s “Beyond Vietnam” Speech
April 18 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDTFree
April 2017 is the 50th anniversary of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech “Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence”. In it, Dr. King confronted the deeply rooted racism, militarism and materialism in the U.S., describing our government as the greatest purveyor of violence in the world. Fifty years later his analysis and call to action is as relevant now as it was then. There will be three public participatory readings of the speech at 12 noon, 2 pm and 4 pm.
