By 1967, Martin Luther King realized he could no longer focus on narrow "civil rights" issues such as housing. He had to oppose larger injustices including rampant militarism, the military-industrial-Congressional complex, and a U.S. foreign policy of eternal war. The U.S. was then waging a major war against Vietnam.

We rebroadcast large portions of MLK's most important speech against U.S. war and militarism--the portions most obviously relevant to U.S. domestic and foreign policies today.
King spoke at Riverside Church, New York City, on April 4, 1967. His hour-long speech was titled, "Beyond Vietnam--A Time to Break Silence."

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "boiler room") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
"I knew that I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today -- my own government. For the sake of those boys, for the sake of this government, for the sake of the hundreds of thousands trembling under our violence, I cannot be silent." -- M.L.K.

King's speech was denounced by the Establishment media. "Demagogic slander that sounded like a script for Radio Hanoi"--Life Magazine.
