The Wilmington Ten included Rev. Benjamin Chavis—who later went on to become the leader of the NAACP and eight African-American male high school students, and an older white women activist. They each spent four to six years incarcerated for a crime they did not commit.
The state of North Carolina has let forty years pass without clearing the names of the Wilmington Ten—it is high time for justice to be served. Sign your name to the NAACP petition asking for Governor Perdue to pardon the Wilmington Ten and clear their names once and for all.
