            “Letter from a Birmingham Jail’ was written by Martin Luther King in the year 1963. This was an open letter written by Martin Luther King from a Birmingham jail in Alabama, where he had been imprisoned for participating in the arrangement and organization of a peaceful protest. The protest was in to opposition to racial segregation by Birmingham’s city government and downtown retailers. The letter was written in reaction to a declaration by a number of white Alabama clergymen who were of the view that though social prejudices and wrongs existed in society, the fight against the prejudices, wrongs and racial segregation should not be fought in the streets. The white clergymen were of the view that this should be taken to courts. Luther uses his experiences, knowledge and perspective to illustrate the troubles of the Black community. By using logos, ethos and pathos, he is able to build trust and confidence in his readers, which enables him influence their actions. He also builds trust by quoting a number of historical leaders such as Jesus, St. Paul and St. Augustine, which brings him out as a learned person.

Martin Luther King Junior opposes and addresses himself in the letter to persons promoting the views of the white clergy. The letter stated that only the use of non-violent actions could help achieve the true civil rights for all members of society. He stated, “This ‘Wait’ has almost always meant ‘Never.’ and “one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws” (King Jr., 1968). Martin Luther King efficiently makes use of logos in the writing of his letter. Luther ensures that he gives a number of reasons for every argument he gives. Martin Luther also ensures that he gives his arguments, reasons and explanations in a logical manner. For instance, he starts his letter by showing why he thinks the claims by the white clergymen is incorrect. Luther effectively uses logos to elicit a number of viewpoints on readers of the letter. Luther ensures that for every action he advocates for, he gives the reasons why he advocates for the particular actions.

    Summary and themes: The "Call to Unity" clergymen agreed that social injustices existed but argued that the battle against racial segregation should be fought solely in the courts, not in the streets. They criticized Martin Luther King, calling him an “outsider” who causes trouble in the streets of Birmingham. To this, King referred to his belief that all communities and states were interrelated. He wrote, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly… Anyone who lives inside the United States can never be considered an outsider…” King expressed his remorse that the demonstrations were taking place in Birmingham but felt that the white power structure left the black community with no other choice. The clergymen also disapproved of the immense tension created by the demonstration. To this, King affirmed that he and his fellow demonstrators were using nonviolent direct action in order to cause tension that would force the wider community to face the issue head on. They hoped to create tension: a nonviolent tension that is needed for growth. King responded that without nonviolent forceful direct actions, true civil rights could never be achieved. The clergymen also disapproved of the timing of the demonstration. However, King believed that "this Wait has almost always meant Never. " King declared that they had waited for these God-given rights long enough and quoted Chief Justice Earl Warren, who said in 1958 that “justice too long delayed is justice denied.” Against the clergymen’s assertion that the demonstration was against the law, he argued that not only was civil disobedience justified in the face of unjust laws, but that "one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws." King addressed the accusation that the civil rights movement was "extreme", first disputing the label but then accepting it. He argues that Jesus and other heroes were extremists and writes: "So the question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be. Will we be extremists for hate or for love?" His discussion of extremism implicitly responds to numerous "moderate" objections to the civil rights movement, such as President Eisenhower s claim that he could not meet with civil rights leaders because doing so would require him to meet with the Ku Klux Klan.

    The selected answer is mostly wrong. Only 1, 5 and 7 are okay. Of course, getting someone else to answer your homework is a way of cheating too.
