MLK/FBI Review – Unpacking A Dark Season in American History

The FBI War on Tupac Shakur, which has a subtitle of The State Repression of Black Leader from the Civil Rights Era to the 1990s, traces the revolution of the African American Negro during the Civil Rights movement and the abilities of leaders like Malcolm X and especially Martin Luther King, Jr to galvanize a people and believed that this ability of King's to spur this people, and even find cross over sympathy to include white youth, was dangerous to the status quo and as history has revealed J. Edgar Hoover, took it upon himself to attempt to tame and temper the velocity of King's reach.

John Potash, the author of The FBI War Against Tupac Shakur, begins with what he has labeled as the second edition, with an introduction to Civil Right Black Liberation and the FBI, where Potash unapologetically, states without reservation that "Years of accumulated evidence support that the FBI orchestrated the murder of rap icon Tupac Shakur, and that they used similar tactics to murder other leftist Black leaders."

The 246-page book chronicles how the civil rights movement radicalized into the Black Panther Party, which lead to the targeting of this radicalized, fringe organization. In modern language the Black Panthers would be considered a domestic terror cell, in the 1960s the Black Panthers were giving a voice to the suppression of the America negro, and the Civil Rights movement which was aided by President John F. Kennedy and after his assassination, President Lyndon Johnson.
