Martin Luther King Jr.’s Letter from Birmingham Jail

Martin Luther King, Jr. was jailed on April 12, 1963 for his leadership of non-violent civil disobedience against racism in Birmingham, Alabama. A group of eight white Alabama clergymen published an article titled “A Call for Unity,” critical of Dr. King and his nonviolent methods. King responded with an open letter written from his jail cell, pointing out that “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Dave Chapman will discuss the importance of Dr. King’s letter and how it informs his understanding of the responsibilities of spiritual leaders in social and political matters in the United States.
