Dr. King's “Beyond Vietnam” Speech


Dr. King's "Beyond Vietnam" speech will not be mentioned by many of those who will be pretending today to believe in his message.

Today, the American nation, and the world, is celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., one of America's greatest patriots.

Today, as has become fashionable, many in America's political circles, are giving lip-service praise to this great peacemaker as they continue their militaristic warmongering policies abroad--and while Republicans, with the help of conservative Democrats, engage in voter suppression against Black America on the domestic front.

Today, in true honor of Dr. King's life works, the Black Star News here remembers one of Dr. King's most controversial speeches: "Beyond Vietnam", a speech for which he was roundly denounced by many in American politics--and in American media including by the New York Times and Washington Post, the latter saying Dr. King's speech had “diminished his usefulness to his cause, to his country, and to his people.”

The "Beyond Vietnam" speech was given one year to the day before his assassination at New York's Riverside Church on April, 4th 1967.
