April 4, 1967: Vietnam War opposition     • Location:  New York City, New York Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. began to link opposition to the Vietnam War with the civil rights movement in 1967. He publicly denounced America's involvement in the war at rallies and protests. His first public speech against the war, titled "Beyond Vietnam," was made at Riverside Church in Harlem on April 4, 1967. King's position on Vietnam damaged his relationship with President Lyndon B. Johnson, who had signed the Civil Rights Act in 1964.
