Jeff Stetson’s “The Meeting”: A Stage Play @ The Avondale Gallery & Loft
Feb 22 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

***Seating is Extremely Limited***

The Urban Soul Theater Series presents Jeff Stetson’s “The Meeting”, starring John-Mark McGaha, Johnathan Perkins, and Marc Raby.

The Meeting is a 1987 American play by Jeff Stetson about an imaginary meeting between Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X in 1965 in a hotel in Harlem during the height of the Civil Rights Movement.

The Meeting won a Louis B. Mayer Award and eight 1987 NAACP Theatre Awards.[1] It has been performed throughout Europe and the United States.

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.

“An exciting and provocative play, an unforgettable evening of drama.” —NY Post.

“Stirring moments of impassioned rhetoric you feel as if you’ve watched a kind of human-scale wrestling with angels.” —San Francisco Examiner.

“A remarkable, intensely intimate meeting full of undisguised competitiveness, deep passion and potent reasoning THE MEETING is enthralling.” —Chicago Sun Times.
