MLK's antiwar stance riled President Lyndon Johnson — Bob Adelman/Corbis

The name Martin Luther King Jr. is synonymous with nonviolence. Even as other leaders of the civil rights movement advocated more militant tactics, King stood for peace — both in the United States and other countries.

In an interview with Mike Cuthbert of Prime Time Radio, Pulitzer Prize winning historian Taylor Branch explains how King's commitment to nonviolence led him to speak out against the Vietnam War — and incur the fury of President Lyndon B. Johnson.
