49th Anniversary MLK’s Speech
On Monday, April 4th, there will be a meeting of numerous peace activists from various organizations, at the Detroit Central United Methodist Church on the corner of E. Adams and Woodward at 7 p.m. (free parking).
There will be a reading of Dr. King’s speech, “Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence”, in which he provides a diagnosis and a cure- ” a true revolution of values”-for society’s illness of “the giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism, and militarism.”
After the reading of the speech, there will be a reception at Swords into Plowshares Peace Center and Gallery. I would like to invite members of The Zeitgeist Movement to attend the event in order to build alliances with like-minded organizations. This will be a good opportunity to pass out literature and to discuss how TZM also plans on addressing our society’s illnesses, including racism, exteme materialism and militarism.
