"If Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X had met for an hour or so, what would they have found to say to each other?” “The Meeting”, undertakes to answer that question. The shared pain experienced by two very different philosophies - right vs. might to achieve equal civil rights in the United States - makes for compelling theatre. The play explores the division between the Southern Baptist minister who became America's pre-eminent advocate for non-violent protest, and the street-bred exponent for fighting back against racism and segregation with violent self-defence.
