"El Hajj Malik" - Excerpts from the Play about Malcolm X

Location: Campus Center Rm# 301

“El Hajj Malik: A Play about Malcolm X by N.R. Davidson Jr. – a marvelous work that unfolds as a long poem spoken by 10 players. The play chronicles the life and transformation of Malcom X that culminates in awareness through his life journey and Hajj that we are all kin. “Malcolm’s legacy…is that he discerned the hidden meaning behind America’s racial posture, the private interests beneath the public words”[1]

Alumni and actor/director, Kenny Davis (professionally known as Ken Elliott), who directed the 2012 UH Hilo Performing Art Department production of August Wilson’s “Joe Turner’s Come and Gone” will facilitate the February 2015 readings for El Hajj in anticipation of mounting a complete production in February of 2016.
