Wilmington Ten

Celebrating the release of wrongly convicted Wilmington Ten, the RS and TC Jervay Foundation, Inc. the National Newspaper Publishers Association and The Wilmington Journal are holding a film premiere and celebration Saturday, April 5, 2014 in Wilmington, North Carolina. 

The event, Black Press: Joining Together for a Better World, will showcase the premiere screening of the Wilmington Ten documentary followed by a black tie gala.  

In 2011, The Wilmington Journal called upon the National Newspaper Publishers Association and its Foundation to begin a campaign to seek pardons of innocence for the Wilmington Ten.  “The Ten” and their families had endured an injustice for over 40 years.  On December 31, 2012, through the hard work of NNPA and The Wilmington Journal, a courageous Governor Beverly Perdue granted pardons of innocence to the Wilmington Ten, calling their convictions "naked racism".  We invite you to join us to support the unveiling of  a 92 minute documentary about the Wilmington Ten and to honor Governor Beverly Perdue, Rev. Dr. William Barber and others who stood up for justice, making our world "a better world".
