THE BLACKMAN WHO READS ALOUD PRESENTS THE LETTER FROM THE BIRMINGHAM JAIL 56TH ANNIVERSARY
56 years ago on April 16, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wrote his historically profoundly famous letter from the Birmingham, Alabama City Jail. Tonight on April 16, 2019, The Blackman's Read Aloud Hour reads that letter completely. I will post my reading every year on my blog to ensure that my social media and blog supporters understand the importance of those words written by Dr. Martin Luther King. In so many ways many of the thoughts that Dr. King reflected upon are still relevant in American society today. The power structure that Dr. King hoped to change for the betterment of humanity is still proving to be unjust to many peoples of color in our country. Poverty is still running rampant in so many of our black communities with no solution in sight. People are still closing their eyes to the economic, educational, and social devastation that meet so many Americans on a daily basis. So it is imperative that we pass these poignant words of wisdom to every generation with the hope that one day the issues that create these societal deficiencies would eventually be solved. So, please share my reading of this historic letter to those who may be unable to read or comprehend the magnitude of its greatness.
