A secret FBI dossier on civil rights leader Martin Luther King alleges that he had a string of affairs and other "sexual aberrations", as well as links to the Communist Party. The reputation and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr may be facing what one of his biographers has described as a "painful historical reckoning" after shocking new revelations about the Baptist clergyman's relationships with women.
A huge archive of documents recently released from Federal Bureau of Investigation files exposes in detail King's extramarital sexual activities with dozens of women as he travelled the country campaigning against racial inequality. Newly unearthed files also claim the civil rights leader looked on and laughed' as a pastor friend raped a parishioner in a hotel.
There is no evidence that any of the claims in the report were verified. Its cover shows it was assessed in 1994 by an FBI task force on the JFK assassination, which concluded none of the document should be released.
