Celebrate Black History Month by watching acclaimed actors Danny Glover and Felix Justice perform their two-man show, ?An Evening with Langston and Martin,? in Strong Auditorium Wednesday, Feb. 7 at 8 p.m.
?It is going to be an entertaining evening and is a great way to commemorate Black History Month,? said junior La Fleur Stephens, president of the Black Students? Union.
The performance will include theatrical readings by both actors. In the show, Justice depicts civil rights leader Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Glover personifies author Langston Hughes.
?The two-man theatrical production is largely a prelude to the question-and-answer session that follows,? the Los Angeles Times said in an article on the two actors and their show.
Justice began acting 30 years ago and formed his own one-man show in 1981 in which he portrayed King jr. After touring the United States and Africa, Justice was joined by Glover and the two began performing together.
Glover is a well known actor, producer and director. He has been in many television shows, movies, and stage performances. He is best known for his acting in the movie ?The Color Purple.? Glover received an Emmy nomination for his supporting role in the series ?Lonesome Dove? and has won several awards for his involvement in promoting race relations. Admission is $3 for students with UR ID and $5 for the general public. Tickets may be purchased in Wilson Commons at the Common Market and will also be available at the door.
