This video, recorded in 1963 in the USA, is called Martin Luther King | “I Have A Dream” Speech.
From daily The Independent in Britain today:
by Bethan McKernan
His message of equality and fairness inspired generations of people across the world – but also put him at the centre of the FBI’s surveillance operations.
“Personally, I believe in the light of King’s powerful, demagogic speech that he stands head and shoulders over all other Negro leaders put together when it comes to influencing great masses.
We must mark him now, if we have not done so before, as the most dangerous Negro of the future in this Nation from the standpoint of communism, the Negro and national security.”
The operation, which was not approved by a court or subject to any investigative oversight, was initially justified to try and prove King‘s suspected links to Communism.
Thank goodness unsupervised surveillance like that doesn’t happen anymore, eh?
The FBI’s War on Civil Rights Leaders. Steeped in its own racism, without any checks or balances, the FBI devoted more resources to harming the civil rights movement than any other task in its purview: here.
