That’s the question at the heart of One Night in Miami..., which posits the conversations that might have unfolded while boxer Cassius Clay/Muhammad Ali, activist Malcolm X, singer Sam Cooke and football player Jim Brown spent the evening of Feb. 25, 1964 together in a hotel room debating the merits of how, or if, the others addressed the issues at hand in the simmering civil rights movement.

‘The Vagina Monologues’ isn’t about genitals

By Caitlin Rockett
Nearly 20 years ago, a woman from New York City decided the world needed to talk about vaginas. Since 1996, Eve Ensler’s celebrated play The Vagina Monologues has made its way around the globe, inviting audiences to laugh, weep, seethe and rejoice at the real stories of women — from the bliss of sexual awakenings to the embarrassment of trips to the gynecologist to the terror of sexual assault.
