Ideas, passions, respect and no easy answers. Directed by Crescenzo Scipione. Featuring Reuben J. Tapp, Darlando Eanon,Kanard Gaines, and Stephanie Paredes. Free and open to the public.
“Fascinating and dramatically compelling, this eloquent play depicts the supposed meeting of two of the most important men of modern times: Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Differing in their philosophies, but alike in their mutual respect, the two men debate their varying approaches to the same grave social problems, both prepared to die for their beliefs but neither aware of how soon their assassins’ bullets would await them.”
