The FBI Sent A Letter To MLK Urging Him To Commit Suicide.

KING

Back in 1964 the FBI allegedly sent Martin Luther King, the African-American Civil Rights leader an anonymous letter which stated that if he didn’t kill himself in 34 days information about his sexual indiscretions would be made public. In what was essentially a blackmail letter penned for the sole purpose of eradicting King forever.

The dark and disturbing letter was recently published in the New York Times after it was discovered by historian and professor Beverly Gage and serves as evidence as to the dirty tricks the intelligence agencies were actively involved in back then. What indeed are they currently up to?
