“I have more directing credits under my belt the past five years than acting credits,” says Barry Scott.

“Barry Scott’s performance is a phenomenal experience for anyone. It not only allows you to relive the actual words of Dr. King but also gives you a real understanding of Dr. King’s character. He connects the words to the reality of Dr. King’s life.”
