A Martin Luther King letter against the Vietnam War is being sold for $95,000.

The letter, being sold by Moments in Time, is dated Sept. 26, 1966, and addressed to Mrs. S.S. Blakney. King wrote at the time, “the inequalities of the present military draft system place an unequal burden on Negro men for service in Vietnam. We believe it grossly unjust to ask a man to fight in such a war only to come home to face indignities and de facto slavery in his own country.”

The memorabilia dealer claims it’s the only letter ever on the market in which King discussed the war.
