“Our monthly Spirituality and Social Justice Film Conversation will honor Martin Luther King, Jr.

We’ll plan to watch an award-winning documentary made in 2020 entitled MLK/FBI, described from a website as below:

“Delving deeper into the bureau’s sinister plot to destroy the civil rights leader in a larger attempt to derail the Civil Rights Movement, MLK/FBI is based on previously sealed FBI files proving the federal institution’s efforts to ruin his reputation. Former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover labeled King “the most dangerous negro in America” and vowed to use “every resource to destroy him.” For nearly a decade, King was subject to wiretaps, blackmail, bombings, and death threats. Although Dr. King is usually shown as a powerful orator and fearless leader in the documentary, MLK/FBI shows some of his vulnerable moments. The film’s director, Sam Pollard, was one of the co-directors behind the Oscar-nominated Eyes on the Prize documentary series, which chronicled the American Civil Rights Movement from 1952 to 1965. Pollard also produced, along with Spike Lee, the 1997 documentary 4 Little Girls, Lee’s Oscar-nominated film about the notorious racial terrorist bombing of a Black church during the Civil Rights Movement.”
