Profile

On April 3, 1968—a stormy, rainy night—Martin Luther King, Jr. gave a speech at the Mason Temple in Memphis. It was called "I've Been to the Mountaintop," and it is chilling. Its impetus was the city's unfair treatment of its sanitation workers, but King expands the topic to consider the essential question of helping a man in need without concern for anything but what would happen to the man if someone did not stop to help. He also talks about his life and the threats against it, both natural and unnatural. He's been to the mountaintop, he says, and all he wants is to do God's will in the dark days ahead. Once the speech was over, Dr. King retired alone to his motel room. That is where Katori Hall's play, The Mountaintop, begins, an extrapolation of the man's last night on Earth. Jubilee Theatre gives it its North Texas premiere.
