Dr. Martin Luther King’s “Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence” speech was delivered at Riverside Church (121st Street and Riverside Drive) on April 4, 1967, exactly one year before his assassination. It mobilized millions to engage in discussions on the war and support social justice efforts in the United States and internationally.
