While The Bold and the Beautiful is back and currently airing new episodes, Karla Mosley hasn’t reported back to work yet. She’s currently on the east coast and revealed a historic landmark she felt compelled to visit.

Karla Mosley Pays Tribute To Martin Luther King Jr.

Mosley, who has played Maya Avant on the CBS soap since 2013, shared images from her visit to the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tenn. — the historic location where legendary Civil Rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. was gunned down by an assassin on April 4, 1968, when he was only 39 years old.

“It felt necessary to make one short stop on our drive last night,” writes Mosley. “The scripture in front of the site where #martinlutherking was murdered reads: Behold, here cometh the dreamer. Let us slay him and see what becomes of his dream. (Gen. 37:19-20)

“To quote the great #langstonhughes ‘What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun? Or fester like a sore – and then run? Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over – like a syrupy sweet? Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode?’ #History #USHistory #BlackHistory #lorrainemotel #BlackLivesMatter #BreonnaTaylor #justiceforbreonnataylor #WeDecide”

Her moving Instagram post received a reaction from one of BB’s Daytime Emmy-winning scribes, Michele Val Jean, who simply said, “Wow.” Mosley answered back adding, “So powerful. I whispered, ‘Thank you.'”

Mosley wrote this post for her Instagram followers on Tuesday just before another moment in black history occurred — when Senator Kamala Harris was announced as Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate.

While the actress didn’t say where her road trip was taking her, perhaps she’s heading back to Los Angeles to return to the BB set. That would certainly be welcomed news to fans. Stay tuned. The Bold and the Beautiful (BB) airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes.
