THE MEETING answers the question,
"What would have happened if Martin Luther King and Malcolm X had met before
they were both assassinated just three years
apart." It is an emotional, clever, and intense confrontation between
Malcolm X, his hostile bodyguard, and Martin Luther King. This award-winning
drama (eight NAACP Theater Awards and six NY AUDELCO nominations) gives
surprising information about these leaders, the times, their relentless wit and
humor, and their unwavering commitment to human rights.

WORKFORCE and YOUTH
In partnership with HIGHER
HOPES, Pin Points serves youth with electronic ankle
bracelets while others have book bags; still others, severe reading
deficiencies. It doesn't matter. Our program is effective in its simplicity:
We take the
time to develop relationships with youth then show them options. Young folks
don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care. It's the
reason none of our youth have been charged for a crime committed during
the months they are under our care. Ultimately, we
work with youth to redefine "cool" as taught by the father of the REDEFINING
COOL movement, Dr. Bruce Purnell. Our
life-coaching, GED, tutoring, job
training, jobs, and arts programs have been supported by Youth
Rehabilitation Services, UPO, Children & Youth Investment Trust Corp.,
Progressive Life Center., Dept. of Employment, and the DC Commission on the
Arts. For youth with learning disabilities: www.efmeducation.com
