MLK Week 2016 Performance of "The Meeting"
DIRECTED BY ERIC COLEMAN
Starring: Michael Green as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Daniel Carlton as Malcolm X
Ron Wilks as Rashad
The Meeting is an engaging and intelligent play that depicts a fictional account of a secret meeting between Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Following the bombing of Malcolm X’s home and shortly before he was assassinated, Malcolm and Martin meet in a room inside the historic Theresa Hotel. This riveting play deals with issues that are still relevant today: war, poverty, racism, Black self-empowerment. They were men with different ideologies, but a common understanding of the plight of Black Americans.
Talkback and reception to follow.
