WASHINGTON — Love him or hate him, we can’t seem to get enough of the guy.
The BET network this Thursday at 10 p.m. will feature an in depth look at the legendary FBI director J. Edgar Hoover on its “American Gangster” show.
In promoting it’s upcoming segment, BET said:
“The first and most famous director of the FBI, Hoover consolidated his power through a combination of brilliant public relations moves and compromising personal files he kept on politicians who held his fate in their hands. Positioned as an avowed and implacable enemy of Communism, Hoover was often at odds with left-leaning Black leaders throughout his reign, including Marcus Garvey and Paul Robeson.
In recent weeks, reports surfaced that Hoover kept his eye on such notable authors as Norman Mailer and David Halberstam.
Documents recently released also showed that he not only kept tabs on investigative columnist Jack Anderson, but despised him.
