Product Description
The Letter from Birmingham Jail is an open letter written on April 16, 1963, by Martin Luther King Jr. The letter defends the strategy of nonviolent resistance to racism. It says that people have a moral responsibility to break unjust laws and to take direct action rather than waiting potentially forever for justice to come through the courts. Responding to being referred to as an "outsider," King writes, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere". This product takes a look at 6 key excerpts from the letter. The excerpts are accompanied by scaffolded questions. This product comes with a complete teacher's key. Ready to use - no prep!
