About The Event

 Our day begins at Convent Avenue Baptist Church: the site of an annual commemoration of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose last appearance in New York was at this church on March 26, 1968, nine days before he was assassinated.  The event is scheduled to start at 9:30am.  I suggest to come early to be assured a seat!

(note: we will meet after the event directly across the street from the church on Convent Avenue between 144th and 145th street).


11:15pm - 1:00pm: Guided walking tour through the heart of Harlem ending at Riverside Church, 122nd Street & Riverside Drive.

1:00pm - 1:30pm: Visit at historic Riverside Church and/or Reading of Excerpts of Dr. King's most controversial speech, "Beyond Vietnam," which he delivered at the church on April 4, 1967. This speech was a passionate anti-war and social justice speech with a warning about militarism.

1:30pm - 3:00pm (estimated). Optional group lunch at a nearby restaurant.
