The nasty letter the FBI sent MLK accusing him of sex with men and urging him to off himself

Ben Mathis-Lilley, writing in Slate, reported that Yale Historian Beverly Gage found an unredacted copy of the letter in former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover's files at the National Archives.  Public copies of the letter had always been heavily redacted
     The FBI, of course, had been illegally wiretapping King's hotel room beds.
