Description

On April 12, 1963 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was arrested in Birmingham, Alabama. It wasn’t his first time in prison, and it wouldn’t be his last. In jail King penned one of the most important statements on morality, politics, and social justice ever written, known to us as “Letter from Birmingham Jail.” We’ll examine this pivotal moment in the American Civil Rights Movement from every angle, and study King’s subtle, powerful, and persuasive argument that non-violent civil disobedience, no matter how disruptive or inconvenient, was our moral obligation. His words have never been truer than they are today.
