Since the late 1940s, people who have claimed to be UFO witnesses have occasionally come forward with strange stories of visits from “men in black,” giving rise to an odd and unsettling subfield in modern studies of the phenomenon. However, historical researchers point out that the idea of visits from mysterious, dark-suited individuals didn’t begin with the modern UFO era, and in fact, may date back centuries.
This week on The Micah Hanks Program, we look at the folklore surrounding the Men in Black and examine their mythic roots, as well as the modern claims of those who say they have had terrifying, real-life encounters with mysterious dark-suited strangers. Could there be more to some of the stories than mere myth, after all?
