Justice for Maurice Henry Carter

Justice for Maurice Henry Carter

A stage reading at the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities at Michigan State University and the Universalist Unitarian Church of Greater Lansing, Michigan (October 15 & 18, 2015).

Maurice Henry Carter was wrongly convicted of shooting a Benton Harbor, MI policeman in the early 1970s. The play chronicles his efforts and the work of an unlikely ally- former journalist and church organ salesman, Doug Tjapkes -- to secure his freedom. For two men from starkly different worlds, the journey would bond them together forever as brothers.
