Letter from Birmingham Jail

Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day here in the United States, a day to honor the slain civil rights leader, to celebrate how far we have come, and to reflect on how far we still have to go as a nation.

Here’s some suggested reading: “Letter from Birmingham jail.” It is a succinct overview of the injustices faced by blacks only a few short decades ago, and outlined the reasons why MLK advocated nonviolent resistance to these outrages. It includes the famous quote, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

Grace and Peace
