Remember Dr. King’s True Call

Rev. Wendell Griffen - Little Rock, Arkansas

I want to talk about the need that Dr. Martin Luther King called for a year to the day before he was murdered, for a "radical revolution of values" away from profits and property to people and personhood so that we began to work across racial, religious, income, class, and regional lines that began to focus on militarism, materialism, racism, and now classism, sexism, and xenophobia. These are the issues that challenge us. Dr. King called for this. It was why he was killed. It is what we still must overcome.
