According to Reuters, four black men wrongly accused of raping a white teenager 70 years ago were pardoned by top Florida officials on Friday, a long-sought step in a case seen as a historic racial injustice. While none of the men known as the “Groveland Four” remain alive, family members and supporters appealed their innocence to the Florida Clemency Board. The board, meeting at the state capitol in Tallahassee, voted unanimously to pardon the four men.
