Eye On Boise

Free presentation of ‘Letters from Anne and Martin’ play set for BSU tonight

A free presentation of the short play “Letters from Anne and Martin,” based on excerpts from the Diary of Anne Frank and Martin Luther King Jr.’s Letters from a Birmingham Jail, will take place at Boise State University’s Special Events Center this evening, hosted by the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights in Boise and the New York-based Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect. Doors open at 6:30, and the play starts at 7; a discussion will follow.

The event follows recent racist and anti-Semitic vandalism at Boise’s Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial, and is part of a series of events aimed at promoting dialogue on reacting to hateful speech and actions. The Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect sent a team to Boise, including the New York-based actors who will perform the play, Alexandra Gellner, who will portray Anne Frank; and Wesli Spencer, who will portray Martin Luther King Jr.
