The Mountaintop

 

WINNER – LONDON’S OLIVIER AWARD FOR BEST NEW PLAY AND BROADWAY HIT!
Memphis – April 3, 1968. A gripping re-imagining of the events taking place the night before the assassination of Civil Rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. After delivering his magnificent and memorable “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” speech, an exhausted and defeated Dr. King retires to Room 306 at the Lorraine Motel where he encounters a mysterious and spirited stranger as an epic storm rages outside.

An Intergenerational Discussion Exploring Living the Legacy of a Movement

 

Black Power Babies are the children of men and women active in the black power movement of the 60s -70s that are now leaders in all aspects of society – business, arts, politics, academia, and beyond. Join us as we have multiple parent-child pairs that will give personal accounts and insight on the movement and it’s lasting effects on the world. 

This panel discussion will immediately follow “The Mountaintop” performance.
