A casting of the original jail cell door behind which the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was confined after his April 1963 arrest for leading non-violent protests in Birmingham, Alabama, is seen at the Newseum in Washington on February 1, 2013. To celebrate the beginning of Black History Month, the Newseum opened 'Jailed in Birmingham,' a new exhibit featuring the casting of the original jail cell door. It was in this cell that the civil rights leader penned his historic letter defending civil disobedience. The 'Letter From Birmingham Jail,' written in response to a statement by a group of eight white Alabama clergymen, includes the now famous quote, 'Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.'
