No Apathy Allowed - A Must Experience Event... Hard Hitting Drama... "From primal laughter to emotional tears, attendees were touched to the soul..." -Dr. Maurice Henderson
During the anniversary weekend of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s iconic and timeless "I HAVE A DREAM" speech, the Houston Museum of African American Culture (HMAAC) presents the Houston premiere of Lois Moses’ “Say That He More Than A Dream.” This gripping multifaceted drama honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the sacrifices he made during the last years of his courageous life. HMAAC brings you the Philadelphia-based First World Theatre Ensemble production of this provocative piece that moves beyond the "mountaintop."
Directed by Zuhairah McGill and choreography by Charles Tyson, Jr, this fact-based drama gives us another lens through which to view the lives of Dr. Martin Luther and Mrs. Coretta Scott King. Powerful acting interwined with spoken word, music, song, dance, music, and multimedia unveil untold truths from conversations between Dr. King and civil-rights activist Stokley Carmichael, the Poor People’s Campaign to the J. Edgar Hoover administration’s four-year FBI harassment of Mrs. Coretta Scott King!!!
