On the evening of 3/2, the District will be hosting a virtual live theatrical performance on the Malverne UFSD Live You Tube channel titled Letters from Anne and Martin. Letters from Anne and Martin is a unique production that combines the iconic voices of Anne Frank and Martin Luther King, Jr., both of whom were born in 1929 yet seemingly represented drastically different times and cultures. Developed from excerpts from Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl and Dr. King's "Letter from a Birmingham Jail," this piece evokes the important messages from these legendary figures as they write of their hopes and plans for a peaceful and unified world (Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect USA). This performance aligns with our K-12 unit of study where students are exploring Martin and Anne: The Kindred Spirits of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Anne Frank by Nancy Churnin. Teachers have been given resources to develop lessons that include learning about the Holocaust and the Civil Rights movement while discussing how it is only through the triumph of the human spirit that we can hope to rise above the social justice issues facing any period in history.
