From Dr. King’s speech a year before his assassination: Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence.
The verdict of the King family civil suit found US government agencies responsible for Dr. King’s assassination. The King family’s conclusion is that the same forces who drove the Vietnam War killed Martin in order to prevent his occupation of Washington, D.C. in the summer of 1968, and to remain until the war was ended and resources directed to end US poverty.
