About this show

This world premiere centers on the mentorship Martin Luther King Jr., received when he entered Morehouse College at age 15. Through debate over civil disobedience concepts, Morehouse College President Dr. Benjamin Mays sets young MLK on a path towards fighting for civil rights.

Becoming Martin is a Coterie commissioned work by noted filmmaker, screenwriter, director, and playwright Kevin Willmott, who currently serves as a professor of film studies at Kansas University and is hailed as one of the most prolific independent filmmakers today, with films such as Ninth Street, C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America, and Chi-Raq, for which he was executive producer and co-writer with Spike Lee.
