Read: Takin’: pages 12-20, 28-33, 42-47; read the following documents:

• Martin Luther King, The Power of Nonviolence

• Anne Moody, The Jackson Sit-In

• Letters From Mississippi

• Sheyann Webb, Selma

Write: Assignment must be typed, double-spaced, with your name at the top

Write a paragraph that answers this question:

What claims does Martin Luther King, Jr., make for nonviolent resistance?

In answering this question, think about the questions below to focus on the

points that should be covered.

• What are the characteristics of nonviolent resistance, according to King?

• How does nonviolent resistance work to bring about change?

• What does nonviolent resistance demand of the person doing the

nonviolent resistance?

Do not write a paper answering each of these questions individually. The prep

paper will be a coherent paragraph. It should begin with a topic sentence like

this one:

In the early 1960s, Martin Luther King, Jr., explained the principles of

nonviolent resistance.

Feel free to use this topic sentence as you like or to write one of your own, but,

in any case, your paragraph must start with a topic sentence that explains the

point of the paragraph. Your paragraph must be at least five sentences in

length, including the topic sentence.
