Acccording to FBI records released in the early 1960's Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had several associations with close advisors who were menbers of the Communist Party. The FBI endeavored to convience Dr. King to sever his relations with these advisors with only limited success.
During the hearings over the Kennedy's Administration proposed Puiblic Accomadations Bill in July 1963, critics of the Bill charged the civil rights movement, and in particular, Dr. King were being influenced by Communists.
In August 1963, the Justice Department received a report from the
FBI which contained allogations extremely unforavable to Dr. King.

What's next......a holiday for Carl Marx?

The CPUSA was one of the biggest supporters of the civil rights movement. It's not far fetched to think that Dr. King had loose associations with communists but he himself wasn't a communist.

Yes, unlike the bigots who did (and do) like to wipe their fannies with the American flag the Communist Party has always supported racial and gender equality. Much as you may hate it, that has always been legal. It's important to recognize the courage and character of Dr. King in refusing to turn his back on his supporters despite the tremendous political pressure from the Fascist elements of society.

King did associate with some communists, that is true. As reprehensible as communists were, when your back is against the wall you'll take whatever help is offered.
