3rd Annual Reading of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s

“Breaking the Silence: Beyond Vietnam” Speech

Monday, April 3, 2023

Cleveland City Hall Rotunda

4:00 pm-5:30 pm

Dr. King’s 1967 speech exposing militarism, materialism, and racism continues to reverberate in our nation today as our government spends record billions of dollars on militarism every year while our nation’s poor go hungrier, often based on racial inequity.

Our people and our cities could flourish if not for this vast wasteful expenditure.
