Author of Black Americans and Nixon's Piano Kenneth O'Reilly takes a blunt and remarkable look at the FBI and "its relentless drive to destroy the civil rights movement and its most visible leader, Martin Luther King, Jr." (The New York Times).
From Kennedy to Nixon, the FBI unwillingly found itself at the center of the struggle for racial equality and justice. Kenneth O'Reilly tells the shocking story of how political loyalties, priorities, and prejudices turned a government agency into an adversary, instead of a protector, of civil rights.
