So, we need a very serious audit, but also we need an action.
To learn more about this vital speech, we talked to Rev. Osagyefo Sekou, a visiting scholar at the Martin Luther King Papers at Stanford University and a key figure in the Black Lives Matter Movement. As thousands flocked to social media to pay homage to one of the greatest civil rights leaders in history, one organization's tribute to King caused frustration and anger amongst the Black social justice community-the Federal Bureau of Investigations. So how far down will we let our leaders go without speaking and standing up to intolerance?
Martin Luther King Jr. stands with other civil rights leaders on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis in April 1968, a day before he was assassinated.. Tuesday marks the 50th anniversary of King's groundbreaking speech against the Vietnam War in New York City's Riverside Church.
"He showed that he was not just out here for black people, but he was here for the world", said Marian Kramer, activist. National Historic Site is remembering the day King was assassinated 49 years ago in Memphis with silent tours of his childhood home.

Because much of what King railed against in that venerable Manhattan church a half century ago still grips us today, still holds the country back from realizing the inspiring ideals and potential of America that held King in their thrall. "We're talking about [adding] 54 billion dollars to an already bloated military budget". While many whites expressed genuine guilt and sorrow, many others muttered that King had invited his own death. We could end child poverty in America, we could provide everybody with health care.
"I think I was 19".
"He could have written this speech yesterday". It comes as no surprise that since the BLM movement started 3 years ago, numerous most vocal participants have been placed on a watchlist as a way to prevent the second coming of Martin, Malcolm, and Medgar.
"And if we will only make the right choice, we will be able to transform this pending cosmic elegy into a creative psalm of peace", said King in his "Beyond Vietnam Speech". Knowing that, we also understand that if in our death there is meaningful impact and progress, it was well worth the fight. "Now this means that we are treading in hard waters, because it really means that we are saying something is wrong [with capitalism.] There must be a better distribution of wealth, and maybe America must move toward a democratic socialism".
