The Project Unspeakable play is being presented at 7:00 pm on Feb. 22, at Peace House, 2116 NE 18th Ave., Portland, Oregon.
Project Unspeakable was inspired by James Douglass’ groundbreaking and meticulously researched book, JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters.
Through the medium of live theatre, Project Unspeakable intends to challenge the silence that for decades has surrounded the “unspeakable” assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert Kennedy. In so doing, Project Unspeakable also intends to shed light on the “unspeakables” of today — the officially covered-up crimes that have led to or worsened the multiple crises that currently beset our country and the world. In the broadest sense, Project Unspeakable is an attempt to liberate the truth, so that the truth can liberate us.
The Project Unspeakable play being presented on Feb. 22 is one of many presentations by community groups of all kinds all over the country.
