“Why Are You Speaking About the War, Dr. King?”
Time & Location
About the Event
We gather this weekend to honor the life and legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Towards the end of his life, Dr. King became involved in the movement against the Vietnam War and faced many questions about why he was involving himself in the anti-war effort. We turn to his answers in his 1967 speech at Riverside church and consider how we might speak about war today.
