On Sunday, September 17th, Global Citizen and The Riverside Church will join together for an afternoon of dynamic performances and key speakers commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Dr. King’s Beyond Vietnam speech.

Breaking the Silence: Beyond the Dream will be an intergenerational, interfaith program that calls on people from all walks of life to RISE UP and speak out on the injustices facing the world. Just as Dr. King did at The Riverside Church 50 years ago, on Sunday, September 17th Breaking the Silence will deliver a universal call to action to “love thy neighbor.”

Participants include: The Reverend Al Sharpton, Forest Whitaker, The Howard University Gospel Choir, Sir the Baptist, The String Orchestra of Brooklyn, Dr. Chelsea Jackson Roberts and more.
