Hef opens up about Martin Luther King, Jr. hanging out at Playboy Mansion

Posted on: July 19, 2010

Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner has in an interview opened up about late American clergyman Martin Luther King, Jr. hanging out at his mansion.

Hefner, 84, had revealed about King in a documentary by director Brigitte Berman titled, ‘Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist and Rebel’.

“Back in the 1960s, a lot of members of the clergy came to the Playboy Mansion,” the New York Post quoted him as saying.

“It was a time of real revolution in the social scene in America, and the church was very much involved in that. So the same kind of re-evaluation in terms of values was going on inside religion, as well.

“King was actually in Chicago, because at that time, the city was still very segregated, and he was trying to desegregate the schools. That is how I first met Jesse Jackson. He was with King, and King had done some writing for Playboy.

“As a matter of fact, his last piece appeared in Playboy posthumously and was edited by his widow,” he added.
