Rod Keller is on the case again this week, looking into Scientology's many front groups and their activities...

Scientology usually has its front groups hide their connection to the church in order to gain acceptance. But sometimes they're invited through the front door with full knowledge of their actual role. That is the case at the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, which has been showing a video from the Scientology front group United for Human Rights since its opening in 2014.

The Center was built on land donated by the Coca-Cola Company, and sits between that company's World of Coca-Cola museum and the Georgia Aquarium in downtown Atlanta. Civil rights leaders Evelyn G. Lowery, Juanita Abernathy, and Congressman John Lewis were instrumental in establishing the center, which has on display personal papers from the Morehouse College Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. collection, including drafts of Letter from Birmingham Jail and many others.
