While King's influence on the civil rights movement was overall a Good Thing, I found the King Papers Project interesting, considering he was quite a plagiariser.

Wikipedia has more on King's authorship issues.
Was his plagiarism sloppy academic writing or dishonesty? This is the dilemma we face every time we find that a student has copied...
