      Who Will Tell Our Story? A Call to the Vietnam Peace Commemoration May 1-2, Washington D.C.

      Who will tell our story when we are gone? So much was never remembered, and now the time is rapidly passing.

      We sit in conference at the NY Presbyterian Church in Washington DC on May 1-2. Then we hold a solemn march of rededication, arriving at 5 pm May 2 at the Martin Luther King memorial. We will reclaim Dr. King as a peace and justice leader from those who tried to quiet him when he spoke against the war. We will remind people that a mule train from the Poor People's Campaign carried Dr. King's memory through the streets of Chicago in August 1968, just months after he was murdered. We will thank him at the Memorial on May 2 and pledge to defend his legacy.
