Reflect on the memory and influence of Coretta Scott King in this moving drama written by Pearl Cleage. Guest director Danielle A. Drakes takes you back in time to February 6, 2006, as people began lining up at dawn outside of Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church to pay their respects to the late Mrs. Coretta Scott King, widow of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose body lay in state in the small sanctuary. By mid-morning, the crowd wound down the street and around the corner of the old red brick building. People of all ages stood patiently for hours, waiting to say goodbye.
