An angel posing as a maid is sent to the hotel room of Martin Luther King, Jr. on the night before his assassination. What transpires is an inspiring look at the frailties and triumphs of two people who have been to the “mountaintop”.
The Mountaintop showcases a different side of Martin Luther King, Jr.: a man who is tired, flawed, yet—despite everything—is an inspiration.

I have been obsessed with the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. since college. And this fiction about an encounter with an angel the night before he is shot is so powerful. It contextualizes a person whose life inspired so many, including this storyteller.
