Audiobook: The FBI's War on Dr. King - from The Church Committee's Final Reports

Audiobook (5 hours of audio)

"From December 1963 until his death in 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. was the target of an intensive campaign by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to 'neutralize' him as an effective civil rights leader. In the words of the man in charge of the FBI’s “war” against Dr. King: 'No holds were barred. We have used [similar] techniques against Soviet agents. [The same methods were] brought home against any organization against which we were targeted. We did not differentiate. This is a rough, tough business.'"

In 1975, The US Senate's "Church Committee" (named after its head, Senator Frank Church) led a series of investigations into the abuses by US government agencies such as the FBI, CIA, NSA, IRS and others.

Part of the committee's investigation examined the Federal Bureau of Investigation's "war" against Civil Rights Leader Martin Luther King, Jr. That investigation produced a case study detailing the dangerous and often unconstitutional actions that J. Edgar Hoover's FBI took against Dr. King. This ebook contains that case study.

Included in this package is the audiobook, an ebook (epub and mobi formats), and a publically available pdf of the Senate report.
