The Life and Times of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

February 8, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Chapman University celebrates the life and legacy of civil rights leader Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. by presenting this dramatic one-man show, the creation of Jim Lucas, an actor and activist. Lucas chronicles the civil rights movement through the eyes of the Baptist preacher who became a driving force in the nonviolent struggle against inequality and racism.

The actor has traveled nationwide portraying King, delivering hundreds of performances of the iconic “I Have a Dream” speech, as well as “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” and others. After seeing it at a staging for the Diplomatic Corps, President Bill Clinton called Lucas’ performance “the most authentic and exhilarating King I have ever seen.”

Admission is free and open to the public, thanks to support from the Office of the President, the Black Student Union, Cross-Cultural Engagement and the Fish Interfaith Center.
