They really shouldn't have resisted arrest. Now their bail is going to rise by a lot.
WHILE confined here in the Birmingham city jail, I came across your recent statement calling our present activities "unwise and untimely." Seldom, if ever, do I pause to answer criticism of my work and ideas.
On April 19, 1963, Dr. King protested in Birmingham. At the time, Birmingham was the most segregated city in the south. Dr.King saw the potential in the youth. So, he led a protest.
Hopefully, it inspires thousands and maybe millions to do better as citizens of America
Are you ready for the big speech?
Yeah, I've prepared what'm going to say to the world
Unfortunately, Dr.King and all others got arrested. They were sentenced a while in jail. They refused to pay bail.
Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive. Go back to Mississippi. Go back to Alabama. Go back to South Carolina. Go back to Georgia. Go back to Louisiana.
Go back to the slums and ghettos of our Northern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed. Let us not wallow in the valley of despair.
When Dr.King was in jail, he was able to make a letter every week. He made the letter called "Letter from Birmingham jail"
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I HAVE A DREAM TODAY! I have a dream that one day down in Alabama — with its vicious racists, with its Governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification — one day right there in Alabama, little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
In 1963, Dr.King led more than 250,000 people on a march in Washington D.C. When they made it to to Lincoln memorial, many different leaders gave speeches.
Dr.King said his "I have a dream" speech there. He talked about how he wanted the nation to prosper together, not separated or segregated.
He talked about his children and how they would see the world, non-segregated or separated.
