Beyond Vietnam- MLK Jr. Each year, the third Monday of January is reserved to honor the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. Are we to celebrate the MLK who addressed his unforgettable “I Have a Dream” speech or are we to remember the MLK who addressed the “Beyond Vietnam” speech? The public generally remembers Martin Luther King Jr. for his dream of equality for all people, however we are instructed by society to disregard the more extensive course of his vision. Personally, I believe that the true legacy of MLK is unfortunately not the legacy that is imposed on Americans in today’s society. MLK is praised for his “I Have a Dream” speech, yet his “Beyond Vietnam” speech is forgotten. King’s speech “I Have a Dream” is arguably the greatest speech
