MLK 36 and LBJ, 57. Sally Hemings, 34 and Jefferson, 64. Nicholas Katzenbach and Ramsey Clarke 50’s. Five parts for male secretaries and attendants. One actor for V.O. of Wallace et al. Each dialogue is a confrontation around race: lynching laws that were never passed. Voting rights that were finally passed after coercion. Enforced concubinage in spite of racist beliefs. Actors needed who can handle long monologues. Check internet for likenesses.
