Black Voices in America: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "Letter from Birmingham Jail" (Prerecorded)

Jill Carroll

After the May 25, 2020 killing of George Floyd by a law enforcement officer and the subsequent protests to racial inequality, Dr. Jill Carroll was inspired to take a look at Black Voices in America. Carroll gives insight into King's letter and his use of nonviolent protests given the context of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.

From the Birmingham jail, where he was imprisoned as a participant in nonviolent demonstrations against segregation, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., wrote a letter in longhand. It was his response to a public statement of concern and caution issued by eight white religious leaders of the South. Dr. King, who was born in 1929, did his undergraduate work at Morehouse College; attended the integrated Crozer Theological Seminary in Chester, Pennsylvania, one of six black pupils among a hundred students, and the president of his class; and won a fellowship to Boston University for his Ph.D.
