I have linked to this elsewhere, but given the coincidence of this Easter Sunday with the anniversaries of this speech and of Dr. King's murder, I wanted to highlight it here (http://www.historynet.com/43rd-anniversary-of-martin-luther-kings-beyond-vietnam-speech.htm) as well.

The speech is very long, so if you are interested in hearing King's words you may want to listen to this much more condensed and perhaps even more powerful version (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b80Bsw0UG-U) of the speech, delivered at the Ebenezer Baptist Church (a few weeks later, I believe).

Though Vietnam is in our past, King's words still ring true for our own time and are well worth hearing again.

Thanks for the links. I will bookmark for now.
