In The Mountaintop, a play that reimagines Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s last hours alive, King (Samuel L. Jackson) is forced to ask himself what kind of legacy he'll leave behind after a stranger (Angela Bassett) visits his hotel room and delivers some surprising news.

The Root wants to know, if you were with King in his final moments, what would you say to him?

Enter our "What Would You Say to Dr. King?" contest by sharing with us what you would tell or ask the fallen civil rights leader if you could spend one evening with him.
