THE MAN YOU KNOW.
THE STORY YOU DON’T.

Best-selling author Tavis Smiley presents a live multi-media stage presentation of his NY Times Bestseller, Death of A King: The Real Story of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Final Year. Commemorating the upcoming 50th anniversary of his death, this timely presentation will reveal a side of the iconic civil rights leader you’ve never known before.

With Smiley serving as narrator and original compositions performed by jazz pianist Marcus Roberts, this joyful tribute tells the little-known story of King’s final year. Against all the odds and with his popularity in deep decline, King had to summon the courage, conviction, commitment and character, to bring a message of peace, equality and justice to a bitterly divided nation.

This stage presentation brings together elements of visual imagery and live music with eloquent prose, declaring the truth of the impact that one man’s integrity and strong faith in humanity can have on the American people, and people across the globe– a truth as timely today as it was 50 years ago.
