K​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍‍​ing’s Letter clearly evokes a kind of morality based on duties prescribed by universal maxims.

 While his understanding of moral duty comes from religious convictions rather than a belief in the infallibility of universal reason, there is something distinctly Kantian in​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍‍​ the way he approaches the moral questions he is addressing in this letter. 

In your view, does King’s position described in the letter align with Kant’s Categorical Imperative and/or any of the other authors we have read so far in this course? Justify your position​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍‍​.
