“And some of us who have already begun to break the silence of the night have found that the calling to speak is often a vocation of agony, but we must speak. We must speak with all the humility that is appropriate to our limited vision, but we must speak.”
Martin Luther King, Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break the Silence, Riverside Church, 4 April 1967

We urge close consideration of MLK’s searing speech on the drum major instinct. May each word burn through the present spiritual darkness. A few excerpts are transcribed below, together with images researched by DP. No further editorial comment required; MLK says it all.
