Written in April 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr.'s “Letter from Birmingham Jail” delivered an important statement on civil rights and civil disobedience. The 1963 racial crisis in Birmingham, Alabama, was a critical turning point in the struggle for African American civil rights. Although King's letter was not published until after the Birmingham crisis was resolved, it is widely regarded as the most important written document of the modern civil rights movement and a classic text on civil disobedience.

Letter From the Birmingham City Jail is one of Dr. King's most inspired and powerful works. While less famous than his I Have a Dream Speech, it is a masterful work on the U.S. civil rights movement and a seminal reference in the struggle of oppressed peoples against tyrants everywhere.

    In the letter King defended direct nonviolent action as a way of forcing people to take notice of injustice. King said the only weapon we have is the weapon of protest.
