FBI and Martin Luther King, Jr: From "Solo" to Memphis

This book is about Martin Luther King Jr.
"FBI and Martin Luther King, Jr: From 'Solo' to Memphis" provides a gripping exploration into the disconcerting surveillance and harassment campaign conducted by the FBI against Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a pivotal figure in American civil rights and a Nobel laureate. Published on January 1, 1981, this insightful book exposes a troubling chapter in U.S. history, detailing the FBI's transformation from its initial fears of communist infiltration to its invasive tactics, including issuing anonymous threats to Dr. King. Ideal for middle-school readers, this narrative not only delves into the racial and criminal justice domains but also encourages a deeper understanding of the resilience and courage exhibited by social justice leaders against formidable odds. Readers are invited to reflect on the implications of power misuse and the essential ongoing fight for justice and equality. How might we, today, ensure the protection of civil liberties in the face of governmental overreach?
