FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16

AN EVENING WITH MARTIN & LANGSTON

Martin Luther King Jr. and Langston Hughes were more than contemporaries. They met and exchanged correspondence; King called Hughes's "Poem for a Man," about civil rights leader A. Philip Randolph, "another weapon of the pen to our struggle." Last year, in his book Origins of the Dream, N.C. State professor W. Jason Miller documented the fundamental influence of Hughes's imagery of dreams—deferred, shattered, and true—on King's rhetoric, culminating in the famous "I Have a Dream" speech. In this two-man show at NC State LIVE, famed screen actor Danny Glover plays the Harlem Renaissance poet and Felix Justice reanimates the words of King. Arrive early for Miller's preshow talk in Talley Student Union's Coastal Ballroom at 7 p.m. —Byron Woods
