"Free Dontae Sharpe and Kalvin Michael Smith" Initiative
On March 24, 2016 the North Carolina NAACP announces State and National Campaigns to "Free Dontae Sharpe and Free Kalvin Michael Smith", two black men each wrongfully imprisoned for almost half their lives for crimes they did not commit.
On November 5, 2016, after 20 years in prison, Kalvin Michael Smith was freed but Dontae Sharpe, from Greenville NC, is still behind bars. We call on Governor Roy Cooper and Attorney General Josh Stein to do the right thing and free Dontae Sharpe.
