Based on newly declassified files, Oscar-nominated director Sam Pollard’s resonant film MLK/FBI performs the vital task of examining J. Edgar Hoover’s relentless campaign of surveillance and harassment against Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today, when King is celebrated across political spectrums as a moral hero, it’s jolting to confront the years when US agents targeted him as a villain. This film is a crucial way to connect the past to the present.
