    Letters from Anne and Martin

    Letters from Anne and Martin is a unique production that combines the iconic voices of Anne Frank and Martin Luther King, Jr. Developed from excerpts from The Diary of Anne Frank and Dr. King's Letter from Birmingham Jail, this piece evokes the important messages from these legendary figures, as they write of their hopes and plans for a peaceful and unified world.

    Letters from Anne and Martin was first developed for a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebration at the Anne Frank Center USA in 2013. It has since been performed at the Borough of Manhattan Community College, at the South Carolina Society for Social Studies Annual Conference, Battery Park City School, Union Vale Middle School and for an MLK Day celebration event sponsored by Congregation Tifereth Israel and Calvary Baptist Church.

    Produced by The Anne Frank Center USA
    Script Developed by Hannah Vaughn
