Tools for Teaching | MLK x Linkin Park - Wisdom, Justice, and Love

It is a shame that our society only refers to MLK as he relates to race and racism in America. We think it is time to incorporate the full cultural, social, economic, and political teachings of King and if we do, we might rediscover him as one of the most important philosophical and political philosophers of our time.

Check out this short video created by Robert Lopez. His fusion of imagery, music, text, and philosophy is a great example of how to communicate these monumental ideas in a postmodern world.

The speech is an excerpt of Martin Luther King Jr's Beyond Vietnam -- A Time to Break Silence speech delivered 4 April 1967 at Riverside Church, New York City.
