Actors Danny Glover and Felix Justice spoke the words of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and poet Langston Hughes in a free performance that packed Hancher Auditorium in Iowa City.
"There is something about doing this that makes me feel like I'm a part of something much larger," Glover, star of the "Lethal Weapon" movies and "The Color Purple," said Monday night.
"These are words we're all capable of embracing," he said.
Justice said "An Evening with Martin and Langston" is an educational performance, and no one is more educated by the piece than they are.
"There are nuggets in every performance," he said.
