MLK’s “Beyond Vietnam”

Published: March 25, 2022


Dear Friends,

Join us for “A Meal with a Theme"

Wednesday, April 13, 2022
7:15 PM Pacific = 8:15 PM Mountain

We will be discussing "Beyond Vietnam," the speech by Martin Luther King on April 4, 1967, about a year before his assassination. In tis speech, he reminds us that:

“True compassion is more than flipping a coin to a beggar.  It comes  to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring.”

“When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights, are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism and militarism are incapable of  being conquered. “ and

“A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.”
