What would have happened if Malcolm X and Martin Luther King had met before they were assassinated, just three years apart? This intriguing idea is the subject of the critically acclaimed play, THE MEETING, a powerful drama about the lives, philosophies, and times of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X. The fictional hotel room clash, written by Jeff Stetson, received a Louis B. Mayer Award, eight NAACP Theater Awards, and six New York AUDELCO nominations. It has been produced throughout Asia, Europe and the United States.
