Powerful! Martin Luther King Jr.'s Speech - "Beyond Vietnam" (which was heavily influenced by his meeting Thich Nhat Hanh) given in New York, NY on Apr. 4th 1967. That was to come on April 4, 1967 in Riverside Church in New York. There King demonstrated his deep understanding of how the system works. He moved beyond a simple race analysis to include class and foreign policy issues. He forcefully denounced the war in Vietnam. He called the U.S. "the greatest purveyor of violence in the world" and he deplored the "giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism and militarism." Exactly one year later on April 4, 1968 King was assassinated in Memphis.
