Letter from a Birmingham Jail

Martin Luther King, Jr., Letter from a Birmingham Jail

Most people remember the “I Have a Dream” speech, but not as many have read the eloquent letter King wrote from a cell in Birmingham.  It needs little introduction, and it is still as relevant today as it has ever been.  Racism, oppression, and injustice are all around us.  And sometimes it gets so woven in our culture that we are blind to it–unfortunately, even in the church.
