Death of a King reveals a side of the iconic civil rights leader you've never known before. With Smiley serving as narrator and original compositions performed live by jazz pianist Marcus Roberts, this joyful tribute will tell the little-known story of King's final year. Against all odds and with his popularity in decline, King had to summon the courage, conviction and character to bring a message of peace, equality, and justice to a divided nation. Death of a King examines the impact that one man's integrity and faith in humanity can have on the American people, and people across the globe.
