  WARNING: In order to maintain the authenticity of the story and the period in which it occurred, I intentionally included the language of the period in both the music, as well as in the excerpts from my book. I recommend parental guidance for anyone under the age of 13 visiting the site. For elementary teachers wishing to share this site with their class, scroll down right now and press the mute button on the on the music box. This website is dedicated to my mother Dolores Foy Moore, and all the mothers of THE WILMINGTON 10, who fought so valiantly for our freedom, and is centered around a book I am writing about desegregation, social injustice and the tragedy of the case of the Wilmington 10. Although the centerpiece, is the story of the Wilmington 10, any discussion involving social injustice is welcome. For a dedication
to my mother, click on FORUM.

Also check out an essay I wrote entitled, THE TRAGEDY OF THE WILMINGTON 10. This essay was inspired by a need I had, to make sense of the struggles some of the members of the Wilmington 10 encountered , following our release from prison. My understanding became much clearer once I read "Lest We Forget". I recommend that all who wish to understand " Story of The Wilmington 10'", read this book, It represents the point of depature for The Wilmington 10 and so much more of the history of America." Lest We Forget: The Passage from Africa to Slavery and Emancipation: A Three-Dimensional Interactive Book with Photographs and Documents from the Black Holocaust Exhibit (Hardcover)

In an effort to generate a discussion about the traumatic effects of court ordered desegregation in the 60s, as it related to the loss of vital black institutions such as Williston Senior High School, I have extracted a few passages from my unedited manuscript. Warning these excepts contain some very graphic language. Go to Forum to checkout my excepts, TIMELINE FOR TRIUMPHANT WARRIORS.

In preparation for my upcoming book, I highly recommend that you review the following:
"BLOOD DONE SIGN MY NAME" by Timothy B. Tyson (also a movie), "Day of Blood , The 1898 Wilmington Race Riot" by LeRae Umfleet, "Nothing Could Be Finer" by Michael Myerson (could be hard to find), "Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit, A Fictional Account of The Wilmington Ten", by Larry Reni Thomas, "We Have Taken A City" by
Leon Prather, "The True Story Of The Wilmington 10" by Larry Reni Thomas, and "Cape Fear Rising" by Philip Gerrard (so often the truth is found in fiction).
Also, an excellent source for Wilmington 10 researchers, the bibliography in "Black Wilmington and the North Carolina Way" by John Godwin (expensive and definitely a hard book to find.) I recommend the local library and inter-library loan.

Larry Reni Thomas Author of "Rabbit! Rabbit! Rabbit! , A Fictional Account of the Wilmington 10 " and " The True Story Behind The Wilmington 10, has signed on to join in our discussion! For more on the Wilmington 10, scroll down pass the slide show and click on the Assata Shukur link, go to The Talking and do a Wilmington 10 search.
