Honoring Dr. King: The Enduring Relevance of “Letter from a Birmingham Jail”
In observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we are excited to partner with Jews United For Justice as well as synagogues and organizations from around the community for a program on why Dr. King's “Letter from a Birmingham Jail" is just as relevant today, as when he first wrote it.

The letter, which features the immortal words "injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere," will be read by students from the Baltimore School for the Arts, followed by a panel of community leaders who will discuss today's relevance of the letter. Finally, participants will be invited to share their thoughts and feelings. Advance registration is required.
