Sam Pollard's file narrative shrewdly utilizes the FBI's quest for social equality pioneer Martin Luther King Jr to tell the weaved history of leftwing dissent and state-endorsed observation. Previous FBI chief J Edgar Hoover dreaded “the ascent of a dark savior” would upset the isolated business as usual, thus set out to utilize data about King's private life, for example, his extramarital issues, to dishonor his public persona. Pollard incorporates cuts from motion pictures, for example, Big Jim McLain and The FBI Story to show how the authority penetrated mainstream society to develop a picture of itself as “sensible, normal and devoted”. MLK/FBI reexamines this as publicity, and shows how King's antiracist project was seen as against American political difference.

Pollard's choice to shun customary talking heads for voiceover interviews permits the chronicle to become the dominant focal point. The chief previously took a gander at King in a scene of PBS's Peabody grant winning Eyes on the Prize II in 1990. After thirty years, his life stays rich landscape for Pollard, who is quick to consider him as a muddled and untrustworthy man instead of a distant symbol.
