Description


Publication by the Clergy and Laymen Concerned About Vietnam, entitled ‘Speak on the War in Vietnam,’ thirty pages, 8.25 x 10.75, April 1967, signed on the cover in blue ballpoint, “Best Wishes, Martin Luther King, Jr.” The booklet contains two of King’s speeches on the war, including ‘The Casualties of the War in Vietnam,’ given at The Nation Institute in Los Angeles on February 25, 1967, and ‘Beyond Vietnam,’ given at Riverside Church on April 4. Also includes addresses given by several other figures at the April 4 event and a transcript of the subsequent question and answer session. Additional material published in the booklet includes a New York Times interview with King and his comments on the NAACP resolution of April 12, 1967. In fine condition, with edge toning and mild soiling to covers. King’s ‘Beyond Vietnam’ was one of his most important addresses and also one of his most controversial—he opposed the war but remained quiet about it until this point, fearing that involving himself in international affairs would interfere with civil rights progress on the domestic front. An extraordinary signed piece from one of the most tumultuous periods in American history. From the collection of Warren Arthur ‘Chip’ Logan. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
