Martin Luther king Jr’s “letter from birmingham jail” was written on the behalf of eight white clergymen as a response after martin luther king was being criticized for segregation in birmingham. The letter was structured about how king is trying to defend himself from all kinds of accusations and criticism, the letter is also reaching out to americans and african americans about equality amongst the whole society. King was criticised for being an outsider and was blamed for all the wrongdoings in birmingham, but king insisted that he was invited to birmingham to see the president of the southern christian leadership conference, he was there for a religious purpose. King also says that he was in birmingham for the purpose of injustice, if injustice wasn’t stopped in birmingham then there wouldn’t be a stop to injustice everywhere, and birmingham being like the largest segregated city in america. King’s criticism led to his preachings about just and unjust laws. King’s definition of just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. King also said unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. King uses this terms as to why segregation is wrong and can no longer continue. King quoted saying segregation is not only politically, economically, and sociologically unsound, it is morally wrong and awful. King is saying that segregation law is wrong and unjust, so people has right to mislead it.
