Publisher's Summary

On April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated outside of his room at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis. What happened inside room 306 on the evening of April 3 is the subject of Katori Hall's The Mountaintop. Hours after King's final speech, punctuated by his immortal line "I've been to the mountaintop", the celebrated reverend forms an unlikely friendship with a motel maid as they talk into the early hours of what will be his final day.

Aja Naomi King as Camae
Larry Powell as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Directed by Roger Guenveur Smith

Recorded in Los Angeles before a live audience at The James Bridges Theater, UCLAm in May 2016
