The Meeting takes place at the Warehouse Theatre
In the 1960’s black America had a common goal: an end to poverty and racism. Two passionate voices spoke and spurred the black people of America to achieve their aims. Two conflicting ideologies were on offer: immediate, active, provocative change using violence if necessary or non-violent demonstration for long-term peace.
During this honeymoon period of Obama’s presidency, we thought it would be interesting to raise the question: are role models like Malcolm X and Martin Luther King still relevant to our society following the election of the first black President of the United States - the world’s most powerful man?
