Letter From Birmingham City Jail by Martin Luther King, Jr.

17. Letter from Birmingham Jail – Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Letter from Birmingham Jail is an open letter written on April 16, 1963 as a response to a letter Martin Luther King, Jr., received from critics, fellow clergymen who asked him to drop his campaign for non-violent action—the letter, which famously stated, "injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere," became one of King's most powerful written statements and a rally call for an end to racism.
