February 9, 2008

As part of a series of Black History Month conversations, Libero Della Piana, Chair of the New York State Communist Party, speaks about the radical legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Della Piana references King’s famous ‘Beyond Vietnam’ Speech made at The Riverside Church in Manhattan on April 4, 1967 where he called for ‘revolution of values’ and an end to the U.S. war in Vietnam. He also refers to King’s final book ‘Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?’ which called for a guaranteed national income.
