With musical performance by Steve Eaton.
P1 ($25.00) tickets include post-show reception in the Founder's Room at the Morrison Center.
The courage and eloquence of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Anne Frank is interwoven in a unique productions called “Letters from Anne and Martin,” combining texts from “Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl” and from Dr. King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail.”
The powerful stage reading is performed by New York-based actors Wesli Spencer, who portrays Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Alexandra Gellner as Anne Frank.
“They both were utopian thinkers in spite of living in dystopian times, in a world that hated and persecuted them.” (Fran Levy, Anne Frank Moral Courage Project)
The performance will be followed by a 30-minute music set featuring Steve Eaton and the powerful compilation of “We Will Always Stand as One.”
