Martin Luther King, Jr. on War


Often overlooked is Martin Luther King, Jr.’s opposition to the U.S. war in Vietnam. Here are some of his powerful remarks delivered on April 4, 1967.

“I speak as one who loves America, to the leaders of our own nation: The great initiative in this war is ours; the initiative to stop it must be ours.”

“A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.”
