The Wilmington Ten were a group of civil rights activists who spent nearly a decade in jail after being convicted of arson and conspiracy in 1971. The case became an international cause celebre amidst widespread beliefs that the individuals in the case were only guilty of holding dissenting political beliefs. Amnesty International took up the case in 1976 and the convictions were finally overturned on a technicality in 1980. The "Ten": Benjamin Chavis (age 24) - 34 years; Connie Tindall (age 21) - 31 years; Marvin "Chili" Patrick (age 19) - 29 years; Wayne Moore (age 19) - 29 years; Reginald Epps (age 18) - 28 years; Jerry Jacobs (age 19) - 29 years; James "Bun" McKoy (age 19) - 29 years; Willie Earl Vereen (age 18) - 29 years; William "Joe" Wright, Jr. (age 19) - 29 years; Ann Shepard (age 35) - 15 years
