Project #69886 - MLK and the past and present of African American

Hello, 

The project is in two parts about 5 to 7 pages: 

 

Topic:  Part One:  Compare and Contrast Martin Luther King'sLetter from Birmingham Jail, with 

  Letter from a Group of Clergymen, Birmingham, April 12 1963

 -Letter from Birmingham Jail: http://corematerials.homestead.com/53_Martin_Luther_King_sLetter_from_Birmingham_Jail.pdf

                     

-Letter from a Group of Clergymen: http://corematerials.homestead.com/files/added_2012_2013/Letter_to_Martin_Luther_KingA_Group_of_ClergymenApril_12.pdf

 

First:  What charges and accusations do the Clergymen level against Reverend Martin Luther King and against outside agitators generally? There is about one per paragraph.  Put these into your own words.

Second:  Identify MLK's responses to the charges. Are they convincing to you?  Are there any to which he fails to respond?  What different kinds of evidence does he use to support his responses? 

Third: Are his responses convincing, or not so?  Explain why or how you came to this conclusion.

 

Topic:  Part Two:  Consider Martin Luther's "I Have a Dream" speech in the light of the over 50 years 

which have passed since he gave it.

-I have a Dream : http://corematerials.homestead.com/54_MLKDream.pdf

 

What were the key points in his dream? From your perspective, in what ways have we made progress as a nation?  In what ways have we more work to do?  To help you consider some recent occurrences, you can use these resources because in this assignment no outside resources:
