Two amateur actors portraying major civil rights leaders battle for the affections of a community theater audience.

About Key & Peele:
Key & Peele showcases the fearless wit of stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele as the duo takes on everything from “Gremlins 2” to systemic racism. With an array of sketches as wide-reaching as they are cringingly accurate, the pair has created a bevy of classic characters, including Wendell, the players of the East/West Bowl and President Obama’s Anger Translator.

  • They attack you, bust you all upside your mouth and then take you to court and charge you with assault. What kind of democracy is that? What kind of freedom is that, what kind of social political system when a black men has no voice in court,has nothing on his side other what the white man choses to give him. Malcolm X

  • American history as taught in public schools: Slavery was bad and Abe Lincoln ended it. Segregation was also bad but Malcolm X didn't have to be so mean about it. Then Martin Luther King came along and had this big march and ended racism. The last racist left killed him but he went to jail The End But on a serious note, most Americans are so uninformed about Brother Malcolm and our schools need to do a better job teaching about him

    • Using superheroes and other fiction as analogies for politics or history is generally a bad idea, but I guess in a very basic sense the analogy works? Malcolm X and MLK had very similar beliefs in terms of what they wanted society to look like, they just had different ideas on the best way to enact those beliefs. Both were leftists but MLK cared more about optics and making the civil rights movement appeal to people with less radical politics, although he still was publicly anti Vietnam war and considered himself a democratic socialist. Malcolm X was more open about his radical politics and while both preached non violence generally speaking, Malcolm X talked more about self defense than MLK because of the dangerous reality black Americans lived in. They both have very interesting stories and their messages are still relevant today, no matter what country you live in you’d be doing yourself a favor to learn more about them and other civil rights leaders or read/listen to some of their speeches

  • Just some background: This is a parody of a play titled “The Meeting.” The Meeting is a 1987 American play by Jeff Stetson about an imaginary meeting between Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X in 1965 in a hotel in Harlem during the height of the Civil Rights Movement.

  • Malcolm X took more actions than King, thats why he was assassinated, Malcolm X knew that the society will still treat black people unfairly, that’s why he worked hard to change that. He died a Hero. R.I.P Malcolm X

    • @Gilad Solomon I don’t think so, Malcolm did more. Malcolm traveled the word to let other nations know what happens in the USA from discrimination against the black, which forced the usa to take action, Malcolm showed everyone that there will be a fight back, people got encouraged by this. I respect both men but obviously Malcolm did 90% of the work. I don’t think that the right for a person to protect themselves against uncivilized attacks is to be called extreme but you can call it whatever you want. Malcolm will always be #1. I believe that king was trying to contain the black community and to take no action, Malcolm knew about this thats why he had to show his nation that the black people can fight too. You need to remember that at that time white nationalists used to kill black people without them being able to defend themselves. Most experts agreed on that without Malcolm X the discrimination against black people would have been worst. Also u do really need to take a history class but yah.

    • @Mikel Johan Malcolm was an extremist... he actually did worse for the cause, as the media and public could point at him and say “look at what happens when a black man has rights” or some bullshit like that. MLK was a hero
