    Wonderful, powerful words. It's crazy to think that over 50 years later the same issues are STILL issues.

    You deplore the demonstrations taking place in Birmingham. But your statement, I am sorry to say, fails so express a similar concern for the conditions that brought about the demonstrations. <----Now THAT is a point to ponder! It amazes me that those in charge have to be told that. Amazes me and saddens me.

    I respect what this man did, not just for African-Americans, but for the worl

    Letter from Birmingham Jail eBook Ñ Letter from letter mobile, from mobile, birmingham book, jail kindle, Letter from epub, Letter from Birmingham JailLetter from Birmingham Jail PDFThe perfect day to read Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's address to the eight white clergymen who called his activities in Birmingham unwise & untimely. Dr. King has an extraordinary ability with words be they in speaking or writing. This impassioned response is one I will not forget. I do find it terribly sad that we are still have so far to go. While I found myself writing down many of his words, one caught my eye Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Give this a read, another reviewer provides a direct link.

It's all been said really.. Still I feel like I can add a little too this review.

    Dr. King Jr. is a man that inspires me, and has ever since I was a kid, for his eloquence, pride in his people and heritage, and fight for what he believed in. When I've gone through tough times, including sexism and racism, I've looked to him for inspiration to not lash out with violence but find other ways to get some peace from the issue.

    This letter is Dr. King Jr.'s response to his critics and people who don't understand why African-Americans were protesting, picketing, etc. in Birmingham, Alabama in the form of a letter he wrote while in the local jail. While reading this letter, I was hit hard with understand why the events in Birmingham and other areas were happening. I wasn't born when these events happen so this was like loo

    Letter from Birmingham Jail eBook Ñ Letter from letter mobile, from mobile, birmingham book, jail kindle, Letter from epub, Letter from Birmingham JailLetter from Birmingham Jail PDFThis letter is so important and still reads to be so true and so relevant. I was assigned this for school (as well as on civil disobedience which I will be reading next) though I have read it before. It's also especially relevant because yesterday I marched in the women's march in Atlanta. I live in the 5th district in Atlanta and John Lewis is my congressman (my district is doing just fine,by the way. Don't believe everything you read in a tweet). He spoke at the march yesterday and told all of us in the crowd to not let anyone turn us around. It is always important to be reminded that the time is always right to stand up against injustice.
