“Letters from Anne & Martin” tells the story of how Anne Frank and Martin Luther King Jr, born in the same year on different continents, persevered in the face of discrimination. 

The play draws on Frank’s “The Diary of a Young Girl” and King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail”. 

WMFE spoke with Central Florida Urban League’s CEO Glen Gilzean and the Holocaust Memorial Center of Florida’s program coordinator Serena Ahmed about this weekend’s performance. 

Friday night’s performance at Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church is free. The play is recommended for fifth grade audiences and older.
