On February 6, 2006, people began lining up at dawn outside Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church to pay their respects to the late Mrs. Coretta Scott King. The crowd wound down the street & around the corner of the old red brick building. People of all ages stood patiently for hours, waiting to say goodbye. When a cold rain began to fall at sunset, those who had thought to bring umbrellas shared them with those whose resolve was the only thing not dampened by the drizzle. At close to midnight, the crowd had dwindled to a determined few. The five fictional characters in this play are at the end of that long line of mourners.
