The Mountaintop

by KatoriĀ Hall

On April 3, 1968, after delivering one of his most memorable speeches, an exhausted Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. retires to his room at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee, while a storm rages outside. When a mysterious stranger arrives with some surprising news, King is forced to re-evaluate the meaning of his life, confront his destiny, and come to terms with his unfinished legacy, as every person must do. A compelling and thought-provoking reimagination of events the night before the assassination of the celebrated civil rights leader.
