Martin Luther King Controversy: New Book Claims He Was French!
ATLANTA As the Nation celebrated what would have been Martin Luther King's 77th birthday, a new controversy surrounding the charismatic civil rights leader surfaced. In a startling claim which hits at the very heart of the King legacy, it is now claimed that Martin Luther King was, in fact, French.
Historian Taylor Branch's book At Canaan's Edge, released last week, chronicles the life and times of the civil rights activist, including his propensity for "ėextra garlic' and "ėwine with everything.' Branch claims King was born and raised in the Loire valley moving to the U.S. early in 1951.
"He couldn't speak a word of English when he arrived, bathed infrequently and wore a beret all the time,"Ě claims Branch.
Even King's closest friends and family were unaware of his Gallic background and are stunned by the revelations. Jesse Jackson was moved to tears by the news saying, "Who knew? I remember he ate a lot of onions, but never thought anything of it."Ě
King won the Nobel peace prize in 1964. Although the prize is open to anybody, French people hardly ever win it.
