Part of Chapter 8 of DiYanni’s text consisted of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” a letter of response to some local Alabama clergy in which he defends his use of civil disobedience in an effort to bring about change against their rebukes and calls for peaceful complacency. Please read King’s letter, which runs pp. 188-201, though it is occasionally interrupted by DiYanni’s commentary. What was the purpose of his letter and how did he go about arguing his stance? How did he counter their arguments? What do you think we’re the best, most effective points in his essay, and why? Please respond in 1-2 double-spaced pages by 11:59 p.m. on October 23rd. No late responses accepted.
