MLK/FBI film screening and Q&A at HOME Manchester, Manchester and online, 15 January 2021, from £9.99 - Book now

HOME mark the release of Sam Pollard’s new documentary MLK/FBI with an online screening and one-off Q&A with the director, hosted by We Are Parable’s Anthony Andrews. The film is a look at the FBI’s relentless surveillance of Black civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. under the leadership of J. Edgar Hoover. Pollard uses a trove of newly declassified documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act and unsealed by the United States’ National Archives, alongside restored archive footage and new interviews to examine the ways in which government apparatus has been used to target Black activists.

By including interview subjects such as former FBI Director James Comey, MLK/FBI links the past to the present, while also working through the murky implications of King’s alleged non-monogamous affairs, captured on tape by the FBI and used to try to halt his activism.

A percentage of your rental fee from this event will go towards supporting HOME while they are closed.
