Join The Anne Frank Center USA as we mark Martin Luther King Jr. Day with a performance of our signature theater piece, 'Letters from Anne and Martin,' and a reading by Professor Jonathan Rieder. |
Our original production combines the iconic voices of Anne Frank and Martin Luther King, Jr. Developed from excerpts from Anne Frank's 'The Diary of a Young Girl' and Dr. King's 'Letter from Birmingham Jail,' the piece evokes the important messages from these legendary figures, as they write of their hopes and plans for a peaceful and unified world.
Author Jonathan Rieder, professor of sociology at Barnard College, will provide historical context with a reading from his new book 'Gospel of Freedom: Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Letter from Birmingham Jail and the Struggle That Changed a Nation.'
A Q & A with author Jonathan Rieder and with the actors will follow the program.
