Event Details

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), in association with First World Theatre Ensemble, presents the Houston premiere of Lois Moses’ “Say That He More Than A Dream.” Directed by Zuhairah McGill with 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.

Be moved beyond the mountaintop as untold truths unfold in this gripping fact-based drama which chronicles the last years of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life after his controversial “Beyond Vietnam” Speech at Riverside Church in 1967.
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, art becomes your life channel as powerful acting intertwines with spoken word, music, song, dance, music, and visual media!!!
