Event Details

The Mountaintop

The Mountaintop
by Katori Hall
directed by Jasmine Guy

The gripping re-imagining of events the night before the assassination of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, JR. After delivering one of his most memorable speeches, an exhausted Dr. King retires to his room at the Lorraine Motel while a storm rages outside. When a mysterious stranger arrives with some surprising news, King is forced to confront his destiny and his legacy to his people.

A beautiful story that shows him as a man and exemplifies his love for God, Family, and Country through a trans-formative surprise.
