Say He Had More Than A Dream


Lois Moses moves beyond the mountaintop in her hard hitting multimedia drama...


What happens when the concept of Sankofa and a lawyer “artivist” intersect on First World's stage at a time when art and life are blurred lines?


Unveiling an investigation, the fact based "Say That He Had More Than A Dream" moves us beyond the mountaintop as the play speaks to Dr. King’s transformation and gives us another lens through which to view the lives of Dr. Martin Luther and Coretta Scott King. Untold truths unfold from the Poor People's Campaign to the Hoover administration's four year harassment of Mrs. King. A multimedia of spoken word, song, dance, music, visuals and powerful acting tell this compelling story.


“What I want the audience to leave with… is an artistic and experiential proclamation and reformation of the life of Dr. King. And, I charge them (the audience) to be better, not bitter.” -Lois Moses.
