On Sunday evening, February 26, a group of parishioners got together to study and discuss Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Letter from a Birmingham Jail. The background of the situation in our country at the time was our starting point. In 1954, the Supreme Court had called for the racial integration of public schools. However, by 1963 (100 years after the Emancipation Proclamation), not much progress had been made. In his letter, Dr. King explained his reasoning and justification for promoting nonviolent direct action. This led to a discussion of the relevance of his ideas to the current situation across our country.
Stay tuned for discussion opportunities on other relevant topics.
