From the Robert Penn Warren PapersWhy We Can't Wait, NY: Harper & Row [1964].Photograph of #MartinLutherKingJr, 1965. From the Randolph Linsly-Simpson #AfricanAmerican CollectionIn March, 1964, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, US Poet Laureate, and member of the Yale University faculty Robert Penn Warren interviewed Dr. Martin Luther #King Jr. in his Atlanta offices. Warren, a native of Kentucky, was interviewing Civil Rights leaders for his 1965 book, Who Speaks for the Negro? In this collection of interviews, a kind of oral history of the #CivilRightsMovement, Warren calls the work a transcript of conversations. Later that year, King sent Warren his new book, Why We Cant Wait. The landmark volume includes Kings powerful defense of nonviolent protest, #LetterfromaBirminghamJail. In this open letter, one of the most important texts of the Civil Rights Movement, King argues forcefully against injustice with his signature passion and eloquence: Let us all hope that the dark clouds of racial prejudice will soon pass away and the deep fog of misunderstanding will be lifted from our fear-drenched communities, and in some not too distant tomorrow the radiant stars of love and brotherhood will shine over our great nation with all their scintillating beauty. #MLK #MLKDay
