King has been described as “the king of black theater producers” by the journal American Visions (2000). As a writer, producer, director, and activist, King has championed the work of important black writers, actors, and directors, including the first production of Ntozake Shange’s For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf.
