"this is the King that might not get invited to most MLK celebrations" - Dr. Harding
In what may very well be his last interview, the late great Dr. Harding spoke with We Act Radio weeks before his death and shared valuable insight to the legacy of Dr. King.
Dr. Martin Luther King’s "Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence" is considered one of the greatest speeches of the 20th century. Dr. Vincent Harding, the author of that speech and a foremost authority on the Civil Rights Movement, was an intimate colleague of King who encouraged him to speak out against the war.
The speech was delivered on April 4th, 1967 and MLK was later assassinated on April 4th, 1968 after he broke with the establishment.

"our young people today have the capacity to do much more than walk around the mall and shop." - Dr. Vincent Harding
