On behalf of Rev. Michael Carter, National Chairman/President of National Black Wall Street-USA and our chapters and members across the United States, I am pleased to announce that The National Black Wall Street USA have joined The NAACP, Dr. Boyce Watkins, Rev Al Sharpton, Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr and the national civil rights organizations and others on this national campaign to stop the unjust execution date in Georgia of Troy Davis.

 

Last week we received the terrible news that the State of Georgia has set Troy Davis’s execution date for midnight on September 21, just less than a week and a half away from today..

This is our justice system at its very worst, and we are alive to witness it. There is just too much doubt.

 

Consider the situation: Seven out of nine witnesses have recanted their statements; several more have come forward to identify one of the two remaining witnesses as the actual killer; and, earlier this summer, the judge in his final hearing labeled the case against troy as “not ironclad.” Nonetheless, the state of Georgia is set to execute Troy anyway.

Time is running out, and this is truly Troy’s last chance for life.

 

But through the frustration and the tears, there is one thing to remain focused on: We are now Troy Davis’ last hope. And I know we won’t let him down.

There are three steps you can take to help Troy:

 

1. Sign the petition to the Board of Pardons and pass this on to your friends and family. Each name means a more united front for justice:

2. Send a message of support to Troy as he fights for justice on what may be the final days of his life.

3. Make sure everyone knows about this injustice. Spread the word on Facebook and Twitter (hashtag #TooMuchDoubt) so that Troy Davis’ story can be heard. We still have a chance to save his life, but only if people are willing to speak out against injustice.

Today, the State of Georgia has declared their intention to execute a man even though the majority of the people who put him on the row now say he is innocent many implicate one of the other witnesses as the actual killer. Now that a date has been set, we cannot relent. We must redouble our efforts. Thank you for your help.

 

Humbly,

Mark S. Allen
