HCC to host Pin Points Theatre in "The Meeting"
 
WELDON, N.C. – Halifax Community College (HCC) will host Pin Points Theatre in a presentation of "The Meeting" at 11 a.m., Thursday, Feb. 5 in The Centre. The event is part of HCC’s Black History Month Celebration.

"The Meeting" is a dramatization that answers the question, "What would have happened if Martin Luther King and Malcolm X had met before they were both assassinated just three years apart." It is an emotional, clever and intense confrontation between Malcolm X, his hostile bodyguard and Martin Luther King. This award-winning drama (eight NAACP Theater Awards and six NY AUDELCO nominations) gives surprising information about these leaders, the times, their relentless wit and humor, and their unwavering commitment to human rights.

The public is invited to attend this event free of charge. The full schedule of events can be found at http://www.halifaxcc.edu/Calendar/ or call 252-536-7234 or 252-536-7239 for details.
