About

This one-person theatrical tour-de-force takes as its starting point a haunting and oft overlooked statement by King: “Until we commit ourselves to ensuring that the underclass is given justice and opportunity, we will continue to perpetuate the anger and violence that tears the soul of this nation. I fear I am integrating my people into a burning house.”

Incorporating poetry, spoken word, and excerpts of King’s speeches, Michael Wayne Turner III spins these threads into an exuberant, life-affirming and provocative theatrical event not to be missed.

The Ghost of King plays at Oakland Theater Project from June 6—23.
