  Letter from a Birmingham Jail
"The effect of King's words on my father was electric. He was already committed to racial equality, but Dr. King hit him with the conviction that he needed to do something. 'When I began to read his Letter from Birmingham Jail, Daddy recounted, 'I wept while I was reading it and got down on my knees, because it was the best thing outside Scripture that I had ever found.'" (p. 69)
