Reginald F. Lewis Museum celebrates MLK Day

Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. day Monday at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum in Baltimore from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Attend a reading of The Meeting, Jeff Stetson’s compelling play about the supposed conversation between two of this century’s legends: Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Fascinating and dramatic, this eloquent play depicts their differing philosophies, as well as their mutual respect. The two men debate their varying approaches to the same grave social problems, both prepared to die for their beliefs, but neither aware of how soon their assassins’ bullets would await them. The reading is presented by Evolutionary Art Works in anticipation of their production at Theatre Project in February. A Q&A follows with the director. An afternoon of films on Dr. King and the Civil Rights Movement will also screen. The galleries are open.

 

WHERE:        Reginald F. Lewis Museum, 830 East Pratt Street, Baltimore, MD 21202

 

COST:             Special $5 admission.
