In honor of the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday on January 16, I am airing a re-broadcast of Dr. King's speech entitled Beyond Vietnam. Though most of the focus on Dr. King at this time of year is on his "I have a Dream" speech, I feel this is Dr. King's most powerful and provacative speech, yet it is seldom heard. Why is that???? The speech was delivered on April 4, 1967 at Riverside Church in New York city, and ironically was given one year to the day before Dr. King was assasinated. He was 39 years old. The speech is even more important today as the parallel is strikingly similar between Vietnam and our current war on "Terror".
