One Night in Miami

City Theatre presents a preview performance of One Night in Miami, a play about four of the most important figures in Black Civil Rights history. Written by Kemp Powers and directed by Reginald L. Douglas, the work dramatizes the fateful night of February 25, 1964, when young boxer Muhammed Ali, Islamic leader and activist Malcolm X, music legend Sam Cooke, and NFL player Jim Browne meet in a Miami hotel room to celebrate Ali’s title win over Sonny Liston. In a fictionalized account of a real event, the play portrays a pivotal moment in the lives of these men.
