Description:

Wayne Moore will speak at the Main Library about his new book, Triumphant Warrior: Memoir of a Soul Survivor of the Wilmington Ten. Copies will be available for purchase and autographing. The Wilmington Ten were sentenced to 282 years in prison for arson and conspiracy following a 1971 riot in the Port City. Key evidence against them was found to have been manufactured. The internationally controversial case was overturned on appeal in 1980, and the ten were pardoned by North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue in 2012.
