Letter from Birmingham Jail

Read ” Letter from Birmingham Jail” by Martin Luther King Jr., taking special note to mark where the author is making a universal statement about the right to revolt. In other words, while you are reading the arguments King is making about why his movement is justified to carry out acts of civil disobedience, look for those principles King uses to rise above the law-and-order arguments of the day to appeal to the higher standards of morality in free society.
