Storyboard Text

  • Letter From Birmingham Jail
  • "We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny(par. 4).
  • "Never again can we afford to live with the narrow, provincial 'outside agitator idea' "(par. 4).
  • Letter From Birmingham Jail
  • "... to create the kind of tension in society that will help men to rise form the dark depth of prejudice and racism to the majestic height of understanding and brother hood"(par.10).
  • " But I must confess that I am not afraid of the word "Tension" "(par.10 ).
  • Letter From Birmingham Jail
  • "We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed"(par.13 ).
  • Colors In Back
  • "... when you have seen hate filled police men curse, kick, and even kill your black brothers and sisters;"(par. 14).
  • In the first half of Letter from Birmingham jail, King writes back to fellow clergy man that says his present activities are "unwise and in timely"(Par.1). He then writes about how direct action is necessary to help the African Americans get there freedom, and even writes about his non-violent direct action campaign in the letter. He also explains why he is in Birmingham. To back up his actions, he uses words like we, mutuality, and tied.
  • King also uses rhetoric and word choices to advance his purpose and the importance of his direct action campaign. In the letter, he uses the word "tension"  several times to depict the good and bad that's happening and also his thoughts. King uses the word positively to show why he is doing his direct action campaign and why it is important. 
  • King then transitions over and begin to state that the African Americans cannot wait for there freedom anymore because they have waited long enough, and that is a reason why they took direct action. Later in the first half of the letter, he uses rhetoric to try and convince his fellow clergyman that they waited long enough and can't wait anymore, which directly counters the fellow clergy mans claim that his actions were untimely.
