Chaym Smith is the double of Martin Luther King. Not only does Smith resemble King physically, but he also shares his intellectual voracity: widely read in Eastern and Western philosophy, proficient in Sanskrit and martial arts and a talented painter. And yet, while King aspires to make a difference, Smith is a cynic. When Smith becomes King's stand-in, Johnson creates a taut drama in which he explores issues long at the heart of the race issue.
