Room 302,

Filmmaker and PBS Host Tavis Smiley gives greater insight into Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr.'s anti-war and social justice views and deconstructs his
most important but least known speech Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break the
Silence (copies of the speech will be available at the screening). The film
also puts Dr. King's legacy in a contemporary context, particularly in light
of growing poverty and inequality and the recent wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan. The film includes rare archival footage and interviews with
pre-eminent King scholar Clayborne Carson, inspiring academic Dr. Cornel
West, speechwriter Dr. Vincent Harding, & Institute for Policy Studies
fellow Phyllis Bennis.
Free. All welcome! A must see!

Event organized by the Halifax Peace Coalition and co-sponsored by the Nova
Scotia Public Interest Research Group (NSPIRG).
