The Meeting is an engaging and intelligent play that depicts a fictional account of a secret meeting between Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Following the bombing of Malcolm X’s home and shortly before he was assassinated, Malcolm and Martin meet in a room inside the historic Theresa Hotel. This riveting play deals with issues that are still relevant today, such as: war, poverty, racism, and the need for Black self-empowerment. They were two men with different ideologies, but a common understanding of the plight of Black Americans.
