“The Meeting,” a one-act play by Jeff Stetson

Antioch College’s Coretta Scott King Center, in conjunction with Antioch’s performance program, will present a staged reading of “The Meeting,” a one-act play by Jeff Stetson at the Foundry Theater on Tuesday, February 17, 2015, at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free and the performance is open to the public.

“The Meeting” tells the story of a fictitious meeting between Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. shortly before Malcolm X is murdered. The action takes place in a Harlem hotel room where Malcolm X and his bodyguard are waiting for the arrival of King. The play explores these two legendary figures in their attempt to find common ground, navigate their divergent philosophies and address the deeply entrenched racism of the U.S. at the time. “The Meeting” is being presented as part of Antioch College’s programming for Black History Month.

“The Meeting” will be performed on Tuesday, February 17, 2015, at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free and the performance is open to the public. No reservations are necessary. For further information, contact Louise Smith at lsmith@antiochcollege.org or 937-319-6139, ext. 7628.

Climbing Poetree

“Creativity is the antidote for violence and destruction. Art is our most human expression, our voice to communicate our stories, to challenge injustice and the misrepresentations of mainstream media, to expose harsh realities and engender even more powerful hope, a force to bring diverse peoples together, a tool to rebuild our communities, and a weapon to win this struggle for universal liberation.” - Alixa + Naima
 
Climbing PoeTree is the combined force of Alixa Garcia and Naima Penniman. Over the last 11 years, Climbing PoeTree has been at the forefront of social and environmental justice movements by harnessing their art as a tool for popular education, community organizing, and personal transformation. Their award-winning performance is composed of dual-voice spoken word poetry, hip hop, and multimedia theatre that dissolves apathy with hope, exposes injustice, and helps heal our inner trauma so that we may begin to cope with the issues facing our communities.
