On Monday, January 18 The Game Loft will be closed, in order to present a living
history event in honor of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King. From 1:30-4:00pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Belfast (37 Miller St.) there will be a mock trial discussing the
issues of the Fugitive Slave Law of the 1850’s. The case will examine the
impact of a runaway slave on a small Maine
town. Although the case is fictional, the issues it raises concerning human
rights, civil disobedience, and civil rights have lessons not only in history
but in contemporary life. A discussion period led by the Restorative Justice
Program will follow the re-enactment. The event is free and open to the public.
There are parts available for interested community members. This community
event was made possible by a grant from the Maine Commission on Community
Service. For more information, please contact Kali
Rocheleau at the Game Loft at 338-6447 or by email at
