Wilmington tenWilmington, North Carolina- The Black Newspaper Publishers are seeking pardon for a group of 10 civil rights activists who spent almost a decade in prison for allegedly burning down a white-owned business in 1971.

Convicted of arson and conspiracy, the “Wilmington Ten” were exonerated in 1980 after Amnesty International took up their case and proved that the group was prosecuted for their political beliefs, rather then their connection to the crime.

The Black Newspaper Publishers are collectively pushing for a full pardon.

‘We are going to tell the story of the Wilmington 10,” said the National Newspapers Publishers Association Chair, Danny J. Bakewell, Sr, ”And, we think it is incumbent for us to fight for a pardon for those 10 people… justice to this day has not been served.”
