Was really lucky to attend this event tonight (https://kinginstitute.stanford.edu/events/fiftieth-anniversary-martin-luther-king-jr-s-most-controversial-speech-beyond-vietnam) on the 50th anniversary of King's "Beyond Vietnam" speech. Awesome to hear Jones and Carson talk about the process of bringing the speech together and to life.
A lot of challenging focus on how King changed after this, getting assassinated one year to the day later. He never retreated a step from this.
Anyway, if you haven't read "Beyond Vietnam," now is as good a time as any. Maybe the MLK speech with the most current relevance, not nearly as known as "I Have a Dream" and others.

@sjml this is when you realize we need to resurrect usenet. :)
@jenesuispasgoth I would support that! The original federated public correspondence medium. :)
