Nonviolence and Racial Justice
Those who heard Martin Luther King Jr. speak on "Nonviolence and Racial Justice" at Cape May in 1958 gave him a standing ovation at the end of his remarks. His words, though given at the height of the Civil Rights Movement, call to us today: "Now I cannot say that violence never wins any victories; it occasionally wins victories. Nations often receive their independence through the use of violence. But I can say this, that that is all it does. Violence only achieves temporary victory; but it never can achieve ultimate peace. it creates many more social problems than it solves. And violence ends up defeating itself."
