A fictional secret meeting between Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr following the bombing of Malcolm X’s home and shortly before his assassination. This play deals with issues that are still relevant today: war abroad, inner city despair and Black self-empowerment. The play looks at the societal impact of these two men with different ideologies and how they shared a common understanding of the plight of the African-American. Cast: Michael Green as Martin Luther King, Jr., Daniel Carlton as Malcolm X, Ron Wilks as Rashad, directed by Justin Lord.

This performance is a fundraiser for MAN UP! INC whose mission is to serve urban neighborhoods as a multi-cultural, social service agency for neighborhood improvement and for the complete understanding of emergency preparedness.
