Description:

In this WSB newsfilm clip from November 1966, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. speaks about the need for tolerance. Dr. King appears to speak to an audience in an auditorium or gymnasium; a variety of flags hang on the walls. King asserts that it is impossible to live without members of other races, religions, and traditions and because of this people must learn to live together. He declares that loyalties between people must transcend tribe, class, race, and nation. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. advocated racial harmony as an important aspect of nonviolence and the ultimate goal of the civil rights movement. King repeated these same themes many times, notably in "A Christmas Sermon on Peace, given on December 24, 1967 in Ebenezer Baptist Church. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation recorded and broadcast the sermon as part of the Massey lectures.
