(National Sentinel) Assassination: Among some 600 documents related to the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy published by the National Archives on Friday included an FBI assessment from 1968 alleging multiple affairs and other sexual activity by civil rights icon Martin Luther King, Jr.
As reported by the Sacramento Bee, the document, titled “Martin Luther King, Jr. A Current Analysis” and dated March 12, 1968, compiled background information on King, including his influences, associates, alleged affairs and more.
King was assassinated April 4, 1968.
“The course King chooses to follow at this critical time could have momentous impact on the future of race relations in the United States,” the 20-page document’s introduction says. “And for that reason this paper has been prepared to give some insight into the nature of the man himself as well as the nature of his views, goals, objectives, tactics and the reasons therefor.”
One section of the document titled “King’s Personal Conduct” mentioned the affairs, which were also referenced in the 2014 film “Selma,” as well as the infamous letter from the FBI urging the civil rights leader to kill himself.
The report referred repeatedly to the sex acts King engaged in as “unnatural” and “abnormal.”
Events the document referenced included numerous workshops that King staged in Miami, Fla., in February 1968 using funds from the Ford Foundation in which he trained black preachers to take community leadership roles.
“One Negro minister in attendance later expressed his disgust with the behind-the-scene drinking, fornication, and homosexuality that went on at the conference,” the document says. “Several 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.”
“One 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.”
Also, the report notes often that King’s sexual proclivities were well-known to his associates.
“As 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 and other of the males present discussed how she was to be taught and initiated in this respect,” the document notes.
“Throughout 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.”
In one section the FBI report referred to an alleged affair King had with a woman that may have resulted in the birth of a baby girl. The document said the source for that information was “a prominent Negro who is related by law to King’s mistress,” who referred to King repeatedly as a “hypocrite.”
“It 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,” the document says.
“The 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.”
