columbus - The choice of a theater company in the United States to a white actor to have the role of Reverend Martin Luther King play has led to excited reactions. Especially writer Katori Hall of the piece, itself a dark woman is very angry.

The remarkable thing is that the man who took the decision, director Michael Oatman, too dark. He wants the piece to play both a dark and a white man the role of King. He believes that the deployment of a Caucasian actor in the play The Mountaintop now is just a sophisticated way to prove the thesis of King that you should judge people by their character and not their skin color. Hall told The Guardian that the decision of disrespect testifies.

The Mountaintop is about the night of April 4, 1968, when Martin Luther King was assassinated.
