Beyond the Classroom presents "MLK: A Call to Conscience"

Description:
MLK: A Call to Conscience delves into one of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.s greatest speeches, Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break the Silence, which Dr. King delivered on April 4, 1967 at the Riverside Church in New York City. The speech, delivered exactly one year before the date of his assassination, is considered pivotal but often under-appreciated. Dr. King challenged the morality of the Vietnam conflict and urged a national discussion about the role of America in the world. Executive Producer Tavis Smiley hosts a stimulating discussion with Harry Belafonte, Marian Wright Edelman and Cornel West to examine the context of Dr. King's words of liberty, responsibility and freedom against the backdrop of the fight for civil rights and an increasingly unpopular war, and to examine the relevance and implications of his words today. {Will appear in FYI on Aug 25, 2011
