Paper Prompt:

Choose one of the following:

King cites conscience as a guide to obeying just laws and defying unjust laws. How close is his position to that of Thoreau? Do you think he had read Thoreau’s “Civil Disobedience” as an important document regarding justice and injustice? Compare and contrast the positions of these two writers.

In many ways, King’s letter is a historical document, more than forty years old. In other ways, the problems of inequality have accompanied us into the twenty-first century. Draft a letter in response to King’s, one that argues that racial equality is much closer, somewhat closer, or not much closer than it was when he was alive. Address your letter to King. Be sure to employ the rhetorical appeals as you write

an introduction, thesis statement, supporting argument, response to opposing views, and conclusion.
