Consider the arguments made about protest, civil rights, and racial injustice in “Public Statement by Alabama Clergymen” and Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail”. You will write an argumentative/persuasive essay answering one of the following questions below. Your response to one of these questions will be your thesis. Choose one:

Martin Luther King Jr. observes, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Where do you stand on this issue? (Be sure to analyze both arguments by the clergymen and King.)

“Justice too long delayed is justice denied,” King argues. Do you agree? Take a position and support. (Remember to analyze both arguments by the clergymen and King.)

In what ways does a people’s fight for equality and justice impact or change a society (or the world)? (Again, you need to analyze the two texts. Consider the two approaches: the eight Alabama clergymen’s belief in addressing the issue of racial discrimination and inequality in the court system vs. King’s response through direct action or civil disobedience.)
