"The Mountaintop" makes Broadway premiere

"The Mountaintop" starring Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett made its anticipated Broadway premiere on Thursday.

The Olivier Award winning play is a re-imagining of events the night before civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was assasinated.

CNN's Soledad O'Brien interviewed the play's up-and-coming playright, 30-year-old Katori Hall at the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, Tennessee, in the very room that Martin Luther King, Jr. stayed the day before his assassination.
