Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence
By Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King
4 April 1967
Speech delivered by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., on April 4, 1967, at a meeting of Clergy and Laity Concerned at Riverside Church in New York City.
“I come to this magnificent house of worship tonight because my conscience leaves me no other choice. I join with you in this meeting because I am in deepest agreement with the aims and work of the organization which has brought us together: Clergy and Laymen Concerned about Vietnam. The recent statement of your executive committee are the sentiments of my own heart and I found myself in full accord when I read its opening lines: “A time comes when silence is betrayal.” That time has come for us in relation to Vietnam.”
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: “Beyond Vietnam: A Time To Break Silence” speech delivered at New York’s Riverside Church in Harlem on April 4, 1967; exactly a year before the day his assassination.
