Letter from Birmingham Jail

Today is Martin Luther King, Jr., Day here in the U.S. In honor of his memory, I’m providing a link to one of my favorite essays of his, Letter from Birmingham Jail.

Regardless of your personal politics, religious affiliation, race, gender, or sexual identity, Dr. King’s words in this essay should speak to you.

Please, take some time today to read this. Not only is it incredibly well-written, but the message it carries is as pertinent today as it was in 1963.

If you’d like more context, check out the Wikipedia article about this piece. It’s amazing to know what Dr. King went through. I think we can learn a lot from this.
