Civil Discourse

It’s been 50 years since 1963’s March on Washington (itself timed to the Emancipation Proclamation’s centennial) featuring Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Over the next five years, President Kennedy, Malcolm X, Robert F. Kennedy, and Dr. King would be assassinated. Hundreds more were murdered. Heights of courage and inspiration battled horrifying violence. Civil rights’ unstoppable train keeps rolling.

The Mountaintop, presented by Arizona Theatre Company through Sunday, December 1, imagines King alone in his Memphis motel room on the last night of his life, visited by a mysterious chambermaid bearing coffee and cigarettes. After the show’s London première made Katori Hall the first black woman to receive the Olivier Award for Best New Play, The Mountaintop moved to Broadway in 2011.
