The Rev. Martin Luther King speaks

To honor the birth of Martin Luther King, Jr., I’m streaming a 4-minute excerpt of “Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence,” Dr. King’s bold address before the anti-war group Clergy and Laity Concerned About Vietnam.

Click here to hear it. And apply his words as you will to present-day circumstances.

The complete 55-minute speech is available as an MP3 file, courtesy of the Free Information Society. To commence downloading, click here.

You can find the text of the speech here.

Dr. King delivered this speech at New York City’s Riverside Church on April 4, 1967, precisely one year before he was assassinated.

This was his most revelant speech. It applies today.
