Description: 

LINKS BETWEEN THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT AND THE VIETNAM WAR : KEY SPEECHES BY DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING AND CORETTA SCOTT KING / compiled from Pacifica Archives by Laurie Garrett. The link between the antiwar movement and the civil rights movement was first made forcefully by Malcolm X. Although the Black Panther Party and Malcolm's followers expressed strong resistance to the Vietnam War, general resistance throughout the Civil Rights Movement was not felt until 1967 when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. announced his opposition to the war. Dr. King chose the wealthy Riverside Church in New York City, where he had been invited to speak, as the site for his announcement. Later, speaking to striking sanitation workers in Alabama, Dr. King drew the links tighter between the Civil Rights struggle, U.S. labor fights, and the War. Just three weeks after his death, Coretta Scott Kink carried on by pronouncing her opposition to the war, speaking at a mass rally in New York. Also contains music. - BROADCAST: KPFA, 30 Apr. 1977.
