Playwright Ira Knight brings his acclaimed one-man production, “Martin Luther King, An Interpretation,” to the Kennedy Family Theatre stage at Barton College on Tuesday at 7 p.m. There is no charge for the performance, and the community is invited to attend.

The dramatic performance is described as an original, thought-provoking, one-man interpretation of Martin Luther King Jr.’s life and work. The interpretation provides a unique lens to better view the human complexities of this minister and civil rights leader who committed his life’s work to generating monumental change across the country.

Actor John Ivey engages the audience through a conversational style of storytelling. Historical accounts and personal stories come to life as Knight’s interpretation captures the essence of King’s passion.

This event is sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the Minority Student Association at Barton College.
