CARROLLTON, Ga. -- A gunshot is heard, followed by rapid footsteps and frantic yelling.
It is April 4, 1968, and the hero of the civil rights movement is lying on the balcony of the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis.
"Ain't Got Long to Stay Here" dramatizes one of America's most violent and inspiring times, and the man who mobilized a generation of people and changed the world.
Actor, writer and historian Barry Scott mesmerizes audiences with his one-man play, a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
He'll perform the show at the Townsend Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday, Feb. 9. It has one act and runs about 75 minutes.
Scott wears various costumes to accompany his portrayals of preachers, civil rights workers, Alabama cops, Klansmen and others of the era. Rear-screen projections display pictures of King, the civil rights movement, marches for equality, police brutality and others who died for the cause.
