Rally in Memphis for equality on anniversary of MLK's death
He delivered the speech on April 4th, 1967, a year to the day before he was murdered. WMRA's Christopher Clymer Kurtz reports how some in Harrisonburg yesterday honored that message.
What is the significance of King's "Beyond Vietnam" speech for people working for racial equality today? Although its military misdeeds pale next to most administrations, the much-admired Obama presidency bears the taint of a drone warfare strategy that killed hundreds of civilians.
STEPHEN THOMAS: We must rapidly begin the shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society. "It was also clear by 1967 that increasingly numbers of Black and Brown men went to fight in the war, in 'brutal solidarity" - as Dr. King said - with white soldiers against a war against the Third World upsurge. Procrastination is the thief of time.' bad events surround us. Can you talk more about "The Real King" whose ideas were so risky that he was murdered for them?
Dr. King promised to return and he did, but he would never march again. The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light.' Here is Césaire's Discourse on Colonialism (1950) and Fanon's Wretched of the Earth (1961), deeply felt prose on behalf of the world's shirtless and barefoot peoples.

American civil rights leader Dr Martin Luther King Jr. And many of us are saying we can't just remember Dr. King's speech or his actions.
After the police and Federal Bureau of Investigation arrived, during all the confusion, people running around, agents trying to get a handle on what had happened, one agent informed his superior on a walkie-talkie how he just heard Coretta Scott King say that Martin's dream would never die. But he believed that if "we will but make the right choice, we will be able to speed up the day, all over America...when justice will roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream". But none of this should come as a surprise as most government institutions in the United States at that time had an agenda to suppress the Black community and keep the White majority as status quo.
The assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stunned, saddened and outraged the nation. We will be marching for these and a dozen other names and attending rallies without end unless there is a significant and profound change in American life and policy. In 50 years, have we made no progress at all? The Washington Post said that King had "diminished his usefulness to his cause, his country, his people". "He's going to come help us'".
McKesson and the dedicated activists like him know much like their predecessor, Dr. King, the threat of violence is out there, but that threat can not be a deterrence to the work that needs to be done. Not the Vietnamese. They were part of the Third World upsurge, which had emerged after World War II in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
