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. Crusades and marches from his past rise up along with prominent figures such as Ralph Abernathy, Andrew Young, Sheriff Bull Conner, Medgar Evers, and George Wallace. Actor, writer, and historian Barry Scott mesmerizes audiences with his one man play Ain’t Got Long to Stay Here. The Mobile Press Register declared, “Barry Scott's portrayal of King is superb. The resemblance of pitch, cadence, dynamic emphasis and hypnotic delivery is uncanny.” An authority on the life and works of Dr. King, Scott teaches a new generation about one of America's most violent yet inspiring times and about the man who touched the heart of his country.

In addition to live theatre and radio, Mr. Scott has performed in numerous film and television roles such as I’ll Fly Away, The Expert, and In the Heat of the Night. This February, celebrate the life of Dr. King in a touching and personal way as you witness the great orator, preacher, and peacemaker.
