About "The Meeting": Fascinating and dramatically compelling, this eloquent play depicts the supposed Meeting of two of the most important men of modern times: Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Differing in their Philosophies, but alike in 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 story takes place in a suite high up in a Harlem Hotel room where Malcolm X and his bodyguard Rashad are resting before Malcolm X’s fateful speech at the Audubon Ballroom. Malcolm X has requested a secret meeting with Dr. King who is also in New York.

Cautious at first, the two quickly fall into a spirited debate about their different approaches to improving the lot of the Black Man in a predominantly White society. Dr. King (the lamb) hoping to find racial harmony through Love and Peaceful Resistance while Malcolm X (the lion) is reconciled to violence and revenge if Blacks are to win out over oppression.

The Meeting received a Louis B. Mayer Award, eight NAACP Theater Awards, and six New York AUDELCO nominations.
