The Virginia Repertory Theatre presents this compelling dramatization of the life and times of one of the most influential and charismatic leaders of the American Century, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Inspired by the arrest of Rosa Parks, Dr. King becomes the prime mover behind the Montgomery, Alabama bus boycott, putting his philosophy of nonviolent protest to work. His phenomenal impact gained national recognition and became the dominant force in the Civil Rights Movement during its decade of greatest achievement.
Audiences will be inspired by the story of this great leader’s struggle and his dream of lifting “our nation from the quicksand of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood.”
This performance has been made possible by Virginia Commission for the Arts, Charlottesville Area Community Foundation, William A. Cooke Foundation and the LaVahn and Mary Frances Hoh Scholarship Fund.
