The following is a nicely packaged video of our presentation on Dr. King, his radical politics and the erasure of those politics by the press and mainstream media. The presentation covers the basics of Dr. King’s political life, The Counter Intelligence Program (COINTELPRO) and then use of the Washington Post as example of mainstream press hostility to King’s growing radicalism. Thanks to the good folks at Highline Community College in Seattle, WA for the event and supplying this video.*
