“Injustice anywhere, is a threat to justice everywhere,”
Dr. Martin Luther king, Jr.
As we look forward, and commemorate the history of Wilmington Ten in various ways, we should be reminded that history has a way of repeating itself.The Wilmington Ten Foundation for Social Justice has been established in hopes of preventing what happened to the members of the Wilmington Ten from ever happening again to others, particularly youth. The members of the Wilmington Ten possessed a deep desire to seek justice and peace in the world around them; thus the mission of the foundation will include the development of programs and cultural experiences that empower those in need of social justice to excel in their endeavors, make positive life choices, and share their creativity and God-given talents in their own communities and the world at large.It is for this reason, that I have brought together an academic and community group to form the Wilmington Ten Foundation for Social Justice. We trust that the entire Wilmington, N.C. community, and the world at large will understand the compelling need for this foundation, and likewise contribute to our mission.The Wilmington Ten Foundation for Social Justice was incorporated in 2011 .
