One of the greatest people ever to live in our time was Martin Luther King Jr. He was the leader of the Civil Rights Movement and the reason it was so successful. With that being said according to FBI Files leaked with the JFK Documents he might have had a hidden private life that no-one knew.
One of the events mentioned in the document are workshops King held in Miami, Florida, in February 1968 with funds from the Ford Foundation to train black ministers in leadership
â€œOne Negro minister in attendance later expressed his disgust with the behind-the-scene drinking, fornication, and homosexuality that went on at the conference,â€ the document reads. â€œSeveral Negro and white prostitutes were brought in from the Miami area. An all night-sex orgy was held with these prostitutes and some of the delegates in attendance.â€
â€œOne room had a large table in it which was filled with whiskey. The two Negro prostitutes were paid $50.00 to put on a sex show for the entertainment of the guests. A variety of sex acts deviating from the normal were observed.â€
The document continued to say that such occurrences were well known by Kingâ€™s acquaintances.
â€œAs early as January, 1964, King engaged in another, two-day drunken sex orgy in Washington, D.C. Many of those present engaged in sexual acts, natural as well as unnatural, for the entertainment of onlookers. When one of the females shied away from engaging in an unnatural act, King … discussed how she was to be taught and initiated in this respect,â€ the document reads.
â€œThroughout the ensuing years and until this date King has continued to carry on his sexual aberrations secretly while holding himself out to the public view as a moral leader of religious conviction.â€
According to the document, King had a frequent affair with a woman, which may have led to a baby girl being born. The FBI said the sources of the information was â€œa prominent Negro who is related by law to Kingâ€™s mistress,â€ who referred to King repeatedly as a â€œhypocrite.â€
â€œIt was learned in February, 1968, from a very responsible Los Angeles individual in a position to know, that King has been having an illicit love affair with the wife of a prominent Negro dentist in Los Angeles, California, since 1962. He believes King fathered a baby girl born to this woman inasmuch as her husband is allegedly sterile,â€ the document reads.
â€œThe child resembles King to a great degree and King contributes to the support of this child. He calls this woman every Wednesday and frequently meets her in various cities throughout the country.â€
He also had affairs with three other women:
â€œThe prominent Negro who furnished the information said he was appalled that a man of Kingâ€™s low character could cause so much trouble for both Negroes and the Government,â€ the document reads. â€œAs can be seen from above, it is a fact that King not only regularly indulges in adulterous acts but enjoys the abnormal by engaging in group sexual orgies.â€
The document noted an alleged disconnect between Kingâ€™s actions and messages.
This is some of the most shocking news I have ever covered. I had to read these documents over a few times because I had couldn’t believe what I was reading. None of this should take away what Martin Luther King Jr. did for our country and it is yet to be seen whether this is confirmed data or not. I will say though that it seems highly unlikely that they would have provided this data without having confirmed it. It was clear that the FBI ran an extensive spying campaign on Martin Luther King Jr. and it may have uncovered something MLK would’ve liked to have kept secret.
