Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was born January 15, 1929. This month, all over the country and the world events and activities will be held to commemorate his contributions and achievements with are many and noteworthy. He was a leader, preacher, activist, and writer. I believe one of his greatest works was written in 1963 from his jail cell in Birmingham Alabama. Without the aid of any reference material, Dr. King wrote the 20 page letter on the margin of the newspapers and other scrap pieces of paper. He words in the letter were so thought-provoking and powerful that they still resonate today.
