"There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe nor politic nor popular, but he must take it because his conscience tells him it is right." – MLK JR.
FBI CASE FILE — 1963

MLK JR. CASEFILE

Given the brief to take something apart, I decided to learn more about the Letter from Birmingham Jail, as well as, the FBI's involvement in threatening and spying on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. That led me to create an infographic in the style of a 1960's FBI case file. The infographic follows a timeline from the arrest of MLK Jr. on April 12th, 1963 to the March on Washington, which took place on August of that same year. I also created a motion graphics video to expand on the general details, as well as, the FBI's involvement in slandering and spying on MLK Jr.
