The program takes place at 7 p.m. on Monday, September 16, at the Main Library, 300 N. Roxboro St.

The discussion will be led by Artistic Director Jeff Meanza and Director Raelle Myrick-Hodges. The play tells the story of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. the day he delivered his “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” speech and the evening before his assassination.
