I Have a Dream - Drama

What if Martin Luther King had the choice to decline his destiny?  This skit reinforces the large contribution Martin Luther made to American history by toying with the idea that after discovering what happens to his future self, he may choose an alternate life.  It all begins with a simple prayer of what direction his life should take.  Immediately, the forces of Good and Evil are on the case.  Evil shows up to try to convince Martin that his young death was tragic and could have been avoided if he had chosen another path. At the same time, Good points out the world would not be the same without his involvement and contribution, and that even though his death, while tragic, was for the greater good of mankind.  In the end, Martin must choose his destiny.  Evil says, "It only takes one wrong decision,"  but Good, knowing the character of Martin Luther King is confident he will choose wisely.   

Themes: Martin Luther King, the accomplishments Martin Luther King made in history, what if Martin Luther had not chosen to fulfill his destiny, how life would have been different if Martin Luther had not been a leader in our nation

The Witnesses - Drama

April 4, 1968 was a tragic and historic day in our history, marking the end of Martin Luther King Jr's life.  Told through the eyes of the witnesses who were there on the day he died, this skit depicts the humanity of one of our country's greatest leaders. Plagued with death threats, bomb scares and even a physical stabbing, Dr. King often contemplated giving up his dream for a more "normal" life.  He even predicted he would not live to see his 40th birthday. See what took place on that fateful day in Memphis as told by the men who were there to witness it: Jesse Jackson, Billy Kyles, Ralph Abernathy, James  Bevel, Andrew Young, and James Orange.  Then see how Dr. King's dream lives on in each of us, and why Rev. Billy Kyles believes God put him there to witness such a tragic event. 

Told by using actual events, this skit will transport you to that tragic day in Memphis and give you a glimpse into the real life and death of Martin Luther King Jr. (Includes a brief transcript of the "I've Been to the Mountain Top" speech.)

Themes: Black History; Martin Luther King Jr Day
