"Martin & Anne: The Kindred Spirits of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Anne Frank"

Anne Frank and Martin Luther King Jr. were born the same year a world apart. Both faced ugly prejudices and violence, which both answered with words of love and faith in humanity. This is the story of their parallel journeys to find hope in darkness and to follow their dreams.

Read by Daniel Yearwood, who is John Laurens/Philip Hamilton in Hamilton on Broadway.
