Democracy Now's MLK Special

This January 19, 2009 Democracy Now special includes Martin Luther King's most far-reaching and radical speech. It was delivered at Riverside Church in New York on April 4, 1967. In it, King called on all Americans to create a "revolution of values" that overcomes the deep structural evils of racism, militarism, and economic materialism. King's vision was a challenging and stubborn dream and this speech, called "Beyond Vietnam," is still powerfully relevant today. As King says, let's rededicate ourselves to "long, difficult, but beautiful struggle for a better world."
