Bernice King Reacts To FBI Report On Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
On Friday, several more JFK files were released including a 20-page FBI report with explosive allegations about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.‘s political ties and sexual activities.
Via CBS News:
The analysis said that in the early 1960s, the Communist Party was trying to get a black labor coalition to further its goals in the United States. It referenced a May 1961 issue of a communist newspaper that stated, “Communists will do their utmost to strengthen and unite the Negro movement and ring it to the backing of the working people.”
The FBI said King and his organization were “made-to-order” to achieve these objectives.
The FBI’s surveillance of King is well-known and the analysis includes several pages about his sexual life. One document said a black minister who attended a workshop to train ministers in February 1968 in Miami “expressed his disgust with the behind-the-scene drinking, fornication and homosexuality that went on at the conference.”
“Throughout the ensuing years and until this date, King has continued to carry on his sexual aberrations secretly while holding himself out to public view as a moral leader of religious conviction,” the FBI report said. The report alleges King had extramarital affairs with a number of women and was suspected of fathering a daughter out of wedlock.
Bernice King took to social media after the report was released and shared her disappointment with the fact that almost 50 years after her father’s death, he is still be assassinated.
