In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I have posted a link to his “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” probably the most instructive and critical piece he wrote during his lifetime. It was written in response to criticism by the Protestant religious community to his activities in the city in the spring 1963.

I am conflict resolution educator, peacebuilding trainer and career coach. My professional experience has spanned the legal, think tank, international, quasi-government, and higher and secondary education sectors. I have taught at all higher education levels: community college, 4-year undergraduate (private, public, religious), graduate, and international. In 2003-2004 I was a U.S. Fulbright Scholar teaching at the University of Tartu in Estonia. From 2005 -2012 I was a senior program officer and senior manager at the U.S. Institute of Peace in Washington where I managed programs for colleges and universities and developed training for faculty and students. I work with all groups and educational institutions to support peacebuilding awareness. View all posts by David J. Smith
