January 14, 2005: Robin Wright, Bob Herbert, Martin Sheen, Alfre Woodard, Kenny Leon, Fisher Stevens, Sean Penn, Lynn Redgrave, Woody Harrelson and Pearl Cleage perform in the play “Speak Truth to Power: Voices from Beyond the Dark” in Atlanta, Georgia.
“I want to be free of these memories. My name is Dianna Ortiz.”, Robin Wright reads the words as she portrays the nun police in Guatemala kidnapped, burned, raped and tortured.
As Ortiz, Robin Wright recounts hanging by her wrist above a pit full of decaying corpses and people near death.
The performance is one of several biographies featured in the play “Speak Truth to Power” which anchors activities this weekend in Atlanta to commemorate the birthday of the late Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., who would have turned 76 Saturday.
The play, based on Kerry Kennedy’s book, is meant to honor people Kennedy describes as defenders of freedom: people who fight against police brutality, genital mutilation, torture, sex slavery and child labor.
