This episode delves into one of Martin Luther King Jr.'s greatest speeches, "Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence," which Dr. King delivered on April 4, 1967. Today this speech is acknowledged to be one of the most powerful ever written by Dr. King and Smiley deconstructs the meaning of the speech, as well as put it in a contemporary context, particularly in light of our nation's current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
