The observance of Martin Luther King's birthday sends us into the archives in search of MLK-related material. 

Newspaper reporter Marc Perrusquia joined us a while back to talk about his book A Spy in Canaan: How the FBI Used a Famous Photographer to Infiltrate the Civil Rights Movement.  The level of infiltration and detail is amazing.  We revisit the interview here.
