Transcript of A Time To Break Silence

Ethos-believable, credible
King uses the fact of how he is a preacher in order for his audience to believe in what he's saying.
Ex: "Since I am a preacher by calling, I suppose it is not surprising that I have seven major reasons for bringing Vietnam into the field of my moral vision."
In conclusion, Dr.King's purpose was to make his audience aware of the events that were occurring. To help him achieve this, he used three appeals: logos, pathos, and ethos. In my opinion, I found the speech to be rather interesting because of the way King expressed his feelings towards the war and stated his opposition.
Logos-appeals to reason or logic
King uses logos to help him achieve his goal of what needed to happen in order for the war to stop.
Ex: He uses this to explain how in times of war "men do not easily assume the task of opposing their government"

Beyond Vietnam--A Time To Break Silence
King uses this to get the audience to understand him and how he felt about the Vietnam war.
Ex: King agreed with the audience when he stated "I am in deepest agreement with the aims and work of the organization which has brought us together:Clergy and Layman concerned about Vietnam."
Dr. King's purpose is to make the church leaders he is speaking to aware that the time has come for them to speak out loudly in opposition of the war in Vietnam.
In Dr.King's speech "Beyond Vietnam-- A Time To Break Silence", he asserts that the war in Vietnam is totally immoral and had far reaching negative implications not only for Vietnam, but the United States as well. This speech was given at Riverside Church in New York City on April 4, 1967.
