MLK/FBI

JANUARY 14, 2022


MLK/FBI

I've always been interested in the civil rights era. And, I've always found it interesting when I lived in Albany, Georgia that so much of what happened, actually occurred in our little town not that many years before we moved there.

Even when I was working on my MBA at Georgia State University, we had marches going on right outside of our classroom windows. It was quite interesting, but I have to admit it was also a bit frightening to witness the anger and the associated violence.

iTunes often runs 99 cent rentals on some of their films and yesterday they were running such a special on a documentary entitled MLK/FBI. I rented it and started watching it last night late and hope to finish it up today.

Common to so many other stories I've seen lately, I am quite amazed at the level of corruption that is present in our government and in the governments of so many other countries. I'm also amazed at the threat that MLK's power presented to some of the leaders of our country, especially in the early years of his rise to power.

I keep thinking that we live in very different times from anything that anyone has ever seen before. But I don't have to look back much further than the civil rights era to realize just how many back then must have felt the same way.
