Chester's play suggests its plot in the title, with Malcom's ghost appearing in the White House and the conversation that ensues between these two transformative African American leaders.

The Atlanta Falcons want to build a new stadium to replace The Georgia Dome, part of it paid for with tax dollars.  Will the club build it downtown or will it be in the suburbs?

The Tony Award-Winning Musical Fela! is in performance at Atlanta's Fox Theatre through March 6.  This sight and sound spectacular tells the story of one of the most compelling figures in modern African music, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

Kuti, who essentially invented Afro-beat, blending jazz, funk, and African music stylings, attempted to live the live of a politically aware artist in the midst of military dictatorship in his native Nigeria.  Fela! tells this amazing story through music and dance.
