This is a fun event for our less political friends too.


Take part in a dynamic, shared reading of one of King's most provocative talks. Taking turns, we create a mosaic of voices, feeling how King's power and clarity speak directly to the problems of today.

Then move to the reggae, rock and revolution of the band SANDFLY, and special guest tba. For info on Sandfly, go to http://www.sandflycentral.com.

Snacks and refreshments (non-alcoholic) served too.


We remember his entire great legacy, but in particular, as is the won't of the War Resisters League, we will focus on how anti-war Martin Luther King Jr. was, and specifically, his coming out against the Vietnam war speech he gave on April 4, 1967 at Riverside Church in Manhattan.

Check out some of these gems from that address:

"Even when pressed by the demands of inner truth, people do not easily assume the task of opposing their government's policy, especially in time of war."

"We will be marching and attending rallies without end unless there is a significant and profound change in American life and policy."

"...I knew that I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today – my own government."
