Martin Luther King Jr., 'Letter From Birmingham Jail' via Jeffrey Goldberg, +The Atlantic #MLKDay

https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/01/martin-luther-kings-letter-from-birmingham-jail/274668/
King's famous letter, published in The Atlantic as "The Negro Is Your Brother" several months after its original writing, was written in response to a public statement of concern and caution issued by eight white religious leaders of the South. It stands as one of the classic documents of the civil-rights movement.

Love this store. Great selection and prices. Very happy to discover their growing selection of organic produce and meats. The spacious indoor parking is also an unexpected pleasure (you can take your cart there). Could not have been more impressed with Temo, store manager--amazing customer service from a professional who truly listens and makes a difference. We'll be back!
