CANCELED: The Meeting

March 9 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Event Navigation

The Meeting is a play written by Jeff Stetson, an internationally acclaimed award-winning playwright and screenwriter. 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. This three-man play will be performed by Kevin Porter, playing the role of Rashad; Sam Prince playing the role of Malcolm X; and John Wilhite playing the role of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Sponsored by the Grand Rapids Public Library Foundation. Consider a gift today.
