BREAKDOWN
DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.: Male, 39+, African American.The Nobel Peace Prize-winning civil rights movement leader; not necessary that the actor look exactly like Dr. King, but certainly needs to bring the charisma and oratory style into the characterization; must be able to inhabit Dr. King in a convincing moment to moment human way, with all his foibles and humor, and yet fulfill the plays climax, convincing us that he is the great orator who gave us the passion behind, "I have been to the mountaintop;" this is a Dr. King who shows his fears and exhaustion, his world-weariness.

CAMAE: Female, 20-30, African American.A Lorraine Motel maid; a versatile intriguing actress who can play many layers, as there is much more to this character than what first appears; smart, sexy, funny, with "otherworldy" strength, but at her center, she is a caring vulnerable woman.
