A Time to Break Silence

"A time comes when silence is betrayal."

By Rev. Martin Luther King

In his "Beyond Vietnam" speech delivered at New York's Riverside Church on April 4, 1967 -- a year to the day before he was murdered -- King called the United States "the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today." Audio and transcript.

Remember Segregation

Founded in the core belief that segregation is, was and has always been wrong, this campaign is intended to make people stop, think and perhaps get a little uncomfortable in the process of realizing the modern day importance of Dr. King's life.

Kubby for President

I wonder what Martin Luther King, Jr., would think of the America we live in — how he’d feel had he and his assassin not met on that fateful April morning and if instead he had awakened this morning to his 78th birthday. I wonder what he’d have to say about a country that treats one in thirty of its own citizens as criminals. I wonder how he’d characterize a country that imprisons more of its own people than any other nation on earth. I wander what he’d call a country that incarcerates one in four of its young black males. I wonder if he could tolerate a country that differentiates between ‘white people’s cocaine’ and ‘black people’s cocaine’ in its sentencing laws. I wonder if Dr. King would have the moral strength to stick to his philosophy of non-violence in this era of militarized police, ‘no-knock’ raids, death sentences for self-defense, and the cold-blooded murder of elderly black women by their alleged protectors. I wonder if Dr. King would even recognize the America we live in today...

"The time has come for America to hear the truth about this tragic war. In international conflicts, the truth is hard to come by because most nations are deceived about themselves. Rationalizations and the incessant search for scapegoats are the psychological cataracts that blind us to our sins. But the day has passed for superficial patriotism. He who lives with untruth lives in spiritual slavery." - Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968), US civil rights leader.

"The means by which we live have outdistanced the ends for which we live. Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men." - Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968), US civil rights leader



"He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it" - Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968), US civil rights leader



"In no sense do I advocate evading or defying the law ... That would lead to anarchy. An individual who breaks a law that his conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for law."- Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968), US civil rights leader
