Mixed Magic Theatre Presents Martin Luther King's BEYOND VIETNAM
For the 2019 Black History Month, Mixed Magic Theatre will present a dramatic interpretation of one of King's most important works, BEYOND VIETNAM. Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King's writings and sermons were important during his lifetime and are now celebrated around the world. King's words not only gave voice to Black people's struggle for justice and equality in America, they are eloquent chronicles of an era. King's great oratory skills gave his words even more weight.
Ricardo Pitts-Wiley will direct his son Jonathan in a staging of MLK's famous Beyond Vietnam speech at the Riverside Church in Harlem, where he adds his voice to the opposition to the war in Southeast Asia. A war that was, and continues to have a devastating impact on America's Black community.
Each performance will be followed by a post-show discussion, led by a special guest moderator.
Featuring Jonathan Pitts-Wiley
