letter from birmingham

  • Write—Triple-Entry Exercise: Choose a quote from your assigned section of the reading (see list below) that strikes you as important—a quote that you think we ought to discuss. HINT: Does it connect to the clergymen’s statement? Does it illustrate a rhetorical strategy? Does it connect to another author–like Carter or Raymo or Spence?


  1. Introduce the quote by explaining in your own words what it is about and the context in which it appears (use complete sentences);
  2. Type out the entire quote (use quotation marks and provide a page #);
  3. Explain how and why you think the quote is important—How is it connected to the author’s argument? to other authors? to you? to society? Explain! Write at least a paragraph for part 3.
