April 4, 2017 was the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King delivering the sermon "Beyond Vietnam" at the Riverside Church in New York. This important turning point for the Civil Rights movement was penned by Vincent Harding, Iliff professor and a pivotal part of Iliff's legacy. The 50th anniversary of the speech coincides with the 49th anniversary of Dr. King's assassination one year later to the day. This year is also Iliff's 125th anniversary. We are putting all these milestones in context together.
Iliff School of Theology is in fellowship with Veterans of Hope and the Riverside Church in New York to create meaningful events in April and October that help us look back and strive to move forward.
In Denver, Iliff live-streamed the event at The Riverside Church in New York City followed by a panel discussion on the sermon and how it continues to challenge us.
