Titled MLK/X, the drama examines “the formative years, pioneering achievements, dueling philosophies and key personal relationships of Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X,” according to the official description. “While King promoted racial equality through nonviolent protest, Malcolm X fought vigorously for black empowerment, identity and self-determination.”

“With their impressive wives, Coretta Scott King (i can destroy you‘s Weruche Opia) and Betty Shabazz (The First Lady‘s Jayme Lawson) at her side, King and Malcolm X became synonymous with the civil rights era and the struggle for racial and economic justice,” the synopsis continues. “While they only met once and often questioned each other’s views, neither would have been as successful without the other.”
