An Analysis Of Martin Luther King’s Letter From Birmingham Jail

Originally posted at teenink.com

author’s comments: This piece was written for a high school paper in my English 1 class. I enjoyed learing more about Martin Luther King. It is my hope that this work will encourage teens to take a close look at his letter.

The renowned author Truman Capote illustrated the power of writing when he stated, “writing has laws of perspective, of light and shade…” Martin Luther King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail” contains these “laws” to convince the clergymen of a church. Each of King’s sentences asks for impartiality and justice for the rights of African Americans. King’s letter uses metaphors and similes to highlight the discrimination occurring and seeks support from the church to help end the awful treatment of African Americans.

Martin Luther King’s metaphors persuade the clergymen to put themselves in the shoes of African Americans. He expresses the privation of African Americans with a metaphor when he wrote; “When you see the vast majority of your twenty million Negro brothers smothering in an air-tight cage of poverty in the midst of an affluent society….” King compares “smothering in an air-tight cage” to the poverty African Americans are suffering under. A second metaphor depicted racial injustice as “quicksand”. Using the metaphor “quicksand” provides urgency to the issue. This quote portrays how racial injustice is incessantly sinking America and its citizens into dangerous circumstances. Even though racial injustice and quicksand are different, they both are negative elements that cause destruction.

Furthermore, figurative language is used multiple times in King’s letter to convey injustice as immoral. King emphasizes this situation by saying it is painful like “a boil that can never be cured as long as it is covered up but must be opened with all its pus-flowing ugliness to the natural medicines of air and light….” In other words a healing boil is akin to racial injustice being exposed so it can be resolved. When racism is exposed, people may see the repulsiveness of the issue. He believes his use of figurative language will make his audience think about these circumstances in detail. …

The Power Of Optimism

Shine With Positivity by Amaranthia Gittens-Jones
Shine With Positivity by Amaranthia Gittens-Jones

By: Amaranthia Gittens-Jones, Guest Blogger at iamthatgirl.com

“Never, never, never give up.” -Winston Churchill

Optimism rocks because it gives me the courage to keep moving forward, no matter what. When people tell me I should lower my expectations, I refuse to be pressured. When they tell me I’m too young to have immense dreams or to aspire to higher ideals because I’m ‘still a ‘child,’ I stay the course.

Rejection and destructive criticism will always be painful to hear, but I have learned it is better to keep going forward, even if something someone says is hurtful. I embrace constructive criticism because it helps me to grow. Learning to live in the present while keeping my feet on the ground is not effortless, but for me it is the best way because I know things always change. Something might look awful today, but if you have the valor to face it with hopefulness, the outcome can be favorable.

I believe optimism is like the combination of a gas pedal and a car. Positivity is the gas pedal, which allows you to move forward, leaving pessimism behind. The car is your fortitude, driving you frontward to your goals. In order to arrive at your destination you cannot have one without the other. Optimism gives you the motivation to get to where you are going.

When I was diagnosed with an auto-immune at 13 years old, I of course panicked. It was a gigantic shift for my family: a switch of diet, new doctors, and medicine. After a while, I determined I would beat the illness. I decided not to be scared, and not let pessimism overtake me. I used my art to heal, and was optimistic about my medical tests changing from positive to negative. I kept working hard at healing my body, eating the right foods, controlling my anxiety, and my tendency to become stressed.
