Free film screening MLK: A CALL TO CONSCIENCE

Thursday, January 24, 2013 - 00:30 to 02:00

In recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Wednesday, January 23
7:30 -9:00 p.m.
Room 302,
Student Union Building, Dalhousie University,
6136 University Ave., Halifax

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).

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
