about this book

In 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., delivered five lectures for the renowned Massey Lecture Series. The collection was immediately released as a book under the title Conscience for Change, but after King’s assassination in 1968, it was republished as The Trumpet of Conscience.

The collection sums up his lasting creed and is his final testament on racism, poverty, and war. Each oration encompasses a distinct theme and speaks prophetically to today’s perils, addressing issues of equality, conscience and war, the mobilization of young people, and nonviolence. Collectively, they reveal some of King’s most introspective reflections and final impressions of the movement while illustrating how he never lost sight of our shared goals for justice.

This new edition includes a CD featuring the original audio recording of King delivering two of the lectures, “Conscience and the Vietnam War’ and “A Christmas Sermon on Peace.”
