Historic FBI letter calls Martin Luther King an 'evil beast'

US civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. waves to supporters from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on August 28, 1963 in Washington, DCA vicious, hate-filled letter written by the FBI and sent to American civil rights champion Martin Luther King has been made public in full for the first time. The single-paged anonymous letter was sent to King in 1964, calling him a “complete fraud and a great liability,” an “evil, abnormal beast,” and threatening to expose his marital infidelities in an apparent bid to make him commit suicide. The letter highlights the hostile attitude the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which was at the time run by J Edgar Hoover, had toward King and the civil rights movement. According to the Times, it was written by one of Hoover’s deputies, William Sullivan, and was apparently sent along with an audio recording containing evidence of King’s extramarital affairs.
