Though they lived radically different lives, human rights legends Anne Frank and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had something vital in common, apart from sharing the same period in history: both were advocates with powerful voices. In the upcoming Wassmuth Center for Human Rights production Letters from Anne and Martin
, two New York-based performers will take the stage at the Morrison Center
to present excerpts of Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl
and "Letter from a Birmingham Jail"
in character as Frank (Alexandra Gellner) and King (Wesli Spencer). Following the reading, local jazz musician Steve Eaton
will perform a set continuing the night's themes of activism and inspiration, including a compilation of "We Will Always Stand as One." Pick up tickets to hear directly from two 20th-century greats.
