Martin Luther King Jr Day

 

MCC celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day Jan. 20 from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. in room M210 in the Les Morford building on the college's Sidney campus, with Jeff Stetson’s “The Meeting”, a “Fascinating, dramatically compelling, and eloquent play” that depicts a theoretical but fictional meeting of two of the most important men of modern times: Malcolm X (portrayed by Darius Colquitt) and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (portrayed by Noah King-Bates). 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 await them” The piece also features Nio Walton as Rashad, Malcolm X’s Bodybuard & Confidante. This production is made possible with special permissions from Dramatist Service Inc.
