With original music by Grammy winner Branford Marsalis, The
Mountaintop stars Samuel L. Jackson as civil rights leader Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr. and Angela Bassett as Camae, a Lorraine Motel chambermaid
who pays Dr. King a visit the evening before he is assassinated. Tony Award
nominee Kenny Leon (Fences, Stick Fly) directs Katori Hall's
Olivier Award-winning play, a fact-inspired work of fiction intent on showing the human side
of the iconic activist.
