        Malcolm, Martin, Medgar

Malcolm, Martin, Medgar

the play, according to Bailey, contains my perceptions on how the three heroic warriors would respond to events and individuals in todays world. It is motivated by my deep admiration for the three brothers, all of whom had options other than sacrificing their lives for us. One of the questions raised in the play is whether we as a group have proven worthy of their sacrifice.the two-act play deals with the three characters, not only as leaders and legends, but as the fathers of thirteen children, ages unborn-12, whom they left behind. another question raised, notes Bailey, is whether they had the right to leave thirteen children fatherless, even for a righteous cause.
