Playwright and screenwriter, Kemp Powers talks to Robert Bound about the new film adaptation of his play ‘One Night in Miami’, directed by Regina King. It imagines the conversations that were had between Malcolm X, Cassius Clay, singer Sam Cooke and NFL player Jim Brown during an evening they spent together in a hotel room in 1964. He discusses the depth of research he undertook – from album liner notes to FBI files, the dynamics between these big characters and why Powers hopes that one day this story won’t be relevant anymore.
