Description: April 4th is the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s speech "Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence". In it King confronted the deeply rooted racism, militarism, sexism, and materialism of the U.S., describing our government as the greatest purveyor of violence in the world. Fifty years later his analysis and call to action is as relevant as it was then.

Join community groups for a reading of this speech and a reflection on Dr. King's call for a radical revolution in values.

Sponsored by St. Paul's United Methodist Church, SJSU Human Rights Program, the San Jose NAACP and the San Jose Peace & Justice Center.
