Summary Bass's study of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s famous "Letter from Birmingham Jail" of 1963 argues that eight local clergymen opposed King's methods of organizing a civil rights march, and King's release of the letter, initially addressed to the clergymen but delivered instead to the media, was conceived as a public relations tool to reach a national audience. 15 halftones.
