Connie Tindall, a member of the Wilmington Ten, speaks at a news conference outside the State Capitol building in Raleigh in which the group called on Gov. Beverly Perdue to pardon them, in this May 2012 photo. Sitting (from left to right) are Wilmington Ten members Willie Earl Vereen; Benjamin Chavis Jr.; James McKoy; Marvin Patrick; and Willie Moore, the brother of late Wilmington 10 member Wayne Moore. Outgoing North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue issued pardons Monday, Dec, 31, 2012 to the Wilmington 10, a group wrongly convicted 40 years ago in a notorious Civil Rights-era prosecution that led to accusations of the state holding political prisoners.
