The Society Archives contains one of the nation’s richest collections on the career of Dr. King, including a copy of the files kept on him by the FBI, obtained by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Nick Kotz under the Freedom of Information Act. Kotz acquired the archive while researching his book about Lyndon Johnson, Martin Luther King Jr., and the civil rights movement entitled “Judgment Days.” Kotz eventually donated the FBI archive to the Society along with other valuable research materials.
