A Colloquy of Great Minds


Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X were men ideologically at odds. King believed the only way to advance black people in America was through non-violent protest, while Malcolm X backed the "by any means necessary" plan of self-defense. But if they could sit down together privately, away from the audiences and white America, what would they say to each other? Jeff Stetson imagined the two men would have something in common in his one-act play, The Meeting. The Black Rep continues its 37th season with a new production of The Meeting starring Ka'rammu Kush at 7 p.m. Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 3 p.m. Sunday (January 8 through 26), except for opening weekend when the Saturday, January 11, show is at 3 p.m. Performances take place at the Emerson Performance Center at Harris-Stowe State University (3031 Laclede Avenue; 314-534-3810 or Tickets are $35 to $45.
