On April 4, 1967 Martin Luther King delivered his sermon, “Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence,” in the Nave of the Riverside Church in New York City. The sermon became King’s major public statement against the War in Vietnam. King spoke eloquently and forcefully about links between the imperialism of US foreign policy and the racism, materialism and violence that profoundly inform American reality at home.  Vincent Harding drafted the text of King’s address and on April 4, 2017 the Veterans of Hope Project joined the Iliff School of Theology and Riverside Church in commemorating this important document via a rich conversation between public theologian Ruby Sales and legal scholar Michelle Alexander.
