Letter from Birmingham Jail

I just finished my essay on Martin Luther King’s response to the “Public Statement of Eight Alabama Clergymen.” King wrote a “Letter from Birmingham Jail” to express his concerns with the Clergymen’s underlying racism in their statement. I wrote an essay illustrating King’s use of ethical, relgious, and emotional appeals and their effect. If you would like to read the essay, just download it using the link below. It, like all other documents on this site, are in .pdf format and require Adobe Acrobat Reader to view.
