Tavis Smiley, broadcaster and best-selling author, will bring this multi-media stage presentation of Smiley’s best-selling book, Death of A King: The Real Story of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Final Year, commemorates the upcoming 50th anniversary of King’s death. Smiley narrates this joyful tribute that tells the little-known story of Dr. King’s final year. Against all the odds and with his popularity in deep decline, King summoned the courage, conviction, commitment and character to bring a message of peace, equality and justice to a bitterly divided nation. Joining Smiley will be renowned jazz artist, Marcus Roberts, the genius of modern piano, who will perform stirring original compositions. Roberts’ new album, Trio Crescent: Celebrating Coltrane, debuts later this month. Tony Award-winning Broadway and film director Kenny Leon (A Raisin in The Sun, The Mountaintop, August Wilson’s Fences) serves as Creative Consultant.
