what would martin luther king say about the iraq war?
Posted by Zadi Diaz


In remembering Martin Luther King today, I came across this speech by him against the Vietnam War (or in Vietnam, the American War).

I couldn't help but wonder how he would feel about the Iraq war if he were alive today.

The "Why I Am Opposed to the War in Vietnam" speech by Martin Luther King Jr. was released by Black Forum records, a subsidiary of Motown, and went on to win a Grammy in 1970 for the Best Spoken Word Recording.

Excerpts of a Sermon at the Ebenezer Baptist Church on April 30, 1967.
