The King Arts Complex hosts this staged piece of historical fiction written by and featuring Dayton actor Alan Bomar Jones and Columbus actor Bryant Bentley. The play imagines an enterprising black television reporter who is granted a rare sit-down interview with the civil rights leader on the day King is scheduled to make an appearance in Memphis, and who plans to delve into difficult topics others have left untouched.
