Down by the Riverside

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Down by the Riverside looks to inspire a new generation of Americans to become engaged and active citizens. Down by the Riverside will recall King's most controversial speech, Beyond Vietnam—A Time to Break Silence at the Riverside Church in New York City on April 4 1967—one year to the day before he died. In this speech, Dr. King declared a strong antiwar stance questioning the nation’s military role in Vietnam. This opposition to the war was deemed extremely unpatriotic; he was vilified in the media, and mainstream America and even fellow civil rights leaders turned against him. On what will be the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968, the Festival poses the question. What can we still learn from Dr. King's message in the United States half a Century later?
