Letter from Birmingham Jail
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was put in jail after leading a march of black protesters without a permit in April 1963. In the “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” King responded to a letter from eight white clergymen who had criticized the march. Dr. King explained how blacks were constantly mistreated and how they yearned for freedom. He wrote about how he convinced them to express their frustrations with non-violent actions such as marches, prayers of pilgrimages, and freedom rides. “justice too long delayed is justice denied,” (King, par 13) this statement says that if wrong-doing is not corrected in a reasonable amount of time, then the wrong-doing will never be corrected.

Martin Luther King, Jr., “Letter from Birmingham Jail”
After being arrested in downtown Birmingham on Good Friday, after violating the anti-protest injunction. Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. wrote his famous letter, “A Letter from Birmingham Jail” responding to the criticism demonstrated by eight prominent white clergy men. This letter has been found important throughout history because it expresses King’s feelings toward the unjust events, and it is an example of a well-written argument. Most importantly, this letter explains current events in Birmingham in 1963 as well as in the rest of America and it demonstrates the approach Reverend King took throughout the whole Civil Rights Movement of 1950’s and 1960’s.
