Martin Luther King, Jr., Beyond Vietnam, 4 April 1967

At Riverside Church in New York on 4 April 1967, King spoke at an event sponsored by Clergy and Laymen Concerned About Vietnam. He described how the war was not only morally wrong, but also how it had sharp impact on the lives of Americans at home. Detailing his moral and practical objections to the war, King called for America to not only withdraw from Vietnam but to pursue a "radical revolution of values."
