“We who engage in nonviolent direct action are not the creators of tension. We merely bring to the surface the hidden tension that is already alive.” (Letter from the Birmingham Jail)

This quote from the famous Martin Luther King Jr. really moves me. This is from his famous 1963 “Letter from the Birmingham Jail,” written after his Good Friday arrest for marching without a permit to break the unjust segregation laws. It brings thoughts of how difficult that era in particular was and how strong he must have been to be able to sacrifice everything in the name of racial equality. As a preacher, MLK was never short of words, but always spoke with a humility that moved millions. This quote divulges how nonviolent direct action is not the creator of problems or strain within people, but it shows the previous tension that had appeared before an act of nonviolent action. As the leader for the Civil Rights Movement, Martin Luther King Jr. was truly an inspiration and easily one of the most beloved heroes in our history who created such great change for such a severe price and will forever be in our hearts as one of the bravest men to have ever walked this planet.
