Letter from a Birmingham Jail

We actually read this letter last year . . . but I must need another year to reread it and reflect upon the things I missed last year. As we, here in Oklahoma, are lamenting the passing of the "we hate immigrants bill" ---- my words, I feel we should reflect upon Dr. King's letter which outlines the four basic steps of a nonviolent campaign:
1) collection of facts
2) negotiation
3) self-purification
4) direct action

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." Dr. King 1963
