"Malcom, Martin and Medgar: A Reunion" will examine how current events might be seen through the eyes of the three slain civil rights icons. WNYC host Brian Lehrer and Farai Chideya will lead a dynamic panel discussion inspired by passages from the play 'Malcolm, Martin, Medgar" written by Malcolm X associate A. Peter Bailey and read by actors. Leading civil rights thinkers and scholars will join an invigorating discussion, art, music, and personal reminiscence while examining how these visionaries influenced and learned from each other, how they were affected by the movements around them, and their legacy. Dr. Brenda M. Greene, Professor of English and Executive Director of the Center for Black Literature at Medgar Evers College is one of the panelists. The event is free. RSVP is mandatory and can be done at www.nyc.org/community.
The event is being held at the Cantor Auditorium at the Brooklyn Museum of Art.
