Abstract: This study in Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) is an attempt to investigate and uncover the power and ideology embedded in the speech “Beyond Vietnam – A Time to Break Silence” by Martin Luther King. Firstly, in the theoretical background, many viewpoints of CDA have been looked at. However, the framework by Fairclough is chosen as the framework for stages of the speech analysis. The Systemic Functional Language addressed by Halliday is also applied to the course of analyzing. Then, the speech is analyzed. The analysis is composed of three major stages: text description, interpretation and explanation. In text description, textual features are focused including vocabulary, grammatical features, transitivity, thematization, and macrostructure. Interpretation concerns the relationship between the productive and interpretative processes while explanation deals with the relationship between discourse processes and social processes. The findings prove the CDA’s statement that there is a relationship between language and power and people can use language to exert power on others and to change or maintain social relationships. Lastly, there are implications of applying CDA to the course of language teaching and learning and the development of critical thinking.
