I am in Birmingham because injustice is here … I cannot sit idly by in Atlanta and not be concerned about what happens in Birmingham. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny …. – “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” April 16, 1963
Join Christ Church on Jan. 16 at 11 a.m. for a reading of the letter the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wrote to his fellow clergymen while he was jailed in Birmingham after a protest. The letter explains his rationale for the pressing need for the non-violent movement for Civil Rights.
Participants will join by Zoom and honor the martyr for racial justice by sharing the reading of his moving words aloud.
