Nassau Community College Celebrates Black History Month with Theatrical Performance “The Meeting” by Jeff Stetson

Plays Witness to a Fictional Meeting Between Malcom X and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
February 24th – 27th, live-stream March 5th 

SUNY Nassau Community College honors Black History Month with performances of “The Meeting” by Jeff Stetson, a theatrical performance that plays witness to a fictional meeting between Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., debating their two distinct approaches to the struggle for true freedom and equality.

Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., differed in their social philosophies and approaches to some of the same grave racial problems that plague our world today. In “The Meeting” these two iconic and renowned individuals will debate their two distinct approaches to the struggle of true freedom and equity for African Americans. Both prepared to die for their beliefs, neither aware of how soon assassins’ bullets would futilely attempt to end their forever enshrined legacies in the sacred halls of Black Heritage.

Live: Thursday, February 24 – Sunday, February 27th
Streaming Only: Saturday, March 5th at 7:30 p.m.
All Live Shows at 7:30 p.m., Sunday Matinee at 2 p.m.
