Event starts at 7pm.
Pomegranate Books,is happy to present Willie Earl Vereen, who will sign copies and talk about his autobiography ‘Wilmington Ten Willie.’
Vereen is a member of a group of nine black men and one white woman who were known internationally during the 1970s as ‘The Wilmington Ten.’
They were accused and arrested in 1972 for being involved in the burning of Mike’s Grocery during a week of violence in 1971 in Wilmington, North Carolina.
His uplifting autobiography is one of a survivor who endured false imprisonment, joblessness, homelessness, alcohol and drug abuse, recovery, redemption, and finally pardon of innocence and compensation.
Read it for yourself and learn that patience is a virtue worth more than gold.
