​In 1972, Wayne Moore, Ann Shepard, James McKoy, Willie Vereen, Marvin Patrick, Reginald Epps, Jerry Jacobs, Connie Tindall, Joe Wright, and Rev Benjamin Chavis (from top left) were convicted of conspiracy to commit arson and shoot fire fighters during several days of demonstrations by African Americans in Wilmington, North Carolina. Their convictions were vacated in 1980 because prosecutors withheld evidence that their witnesses lied, but they had to wait until 2012 to be pardoned.
