A mindblowing story in which archival footage, scenes from Hollywood films and comments from historians, publicists and parties concerned reveal how the FBI tried to publicly damage Martin Luther King's image.

Shortly after his famous 'I have a dream' speech, Martin Luther King, then mostly known as a peaceful advocate of the Afro American civil rights movement, was designated as a threat to America's future by the FBI. By means of disclosed secret federal documents and inspired by the work of historian David J. Garrow, film director Sam Pollard shows in this documentary the witch hunt that followed from the '50s until King's death in 1968. Watch and learn how King was constantly monitored, harassed and even threatened by the American government.
