Four black men were falsely accused of raping a white girl in 1949. They were hunted, tortured in jail to give false confessions and murdered. After nearly 70 years, the so-called Groveland Four were symbolically “pardoned” by unanimous vote today. https://t.co/BAbRb4LJoM

This morning, I stood with the members of the Executive Clemency board to issue a full pardon for the Groveland Four. It’s never too late to do the right thing, especially for these individuals who have had their history so wrongly written. https://t.co/SGdXYLWRPZ

The so-called Groveland Four were falsely accused of rape in 1949. Years later, their accuser recanted. In 2017, their families received apologies. Today, a Florida clemency board and Gov. Ron DeSantis have granted them a long-sought posthumous pardon. https://t.co/p5roJ8cBOK

A false accusation of rape, countless injustices, long-overdue apologies: We're revisiting @Gilbert_King's TMP story about the Groveland Four. Today, they were finally granted posthumous pardons from a Florida clemency board and Gov. Ron DeSantis. https://t.co/GYjSgKyQ4x
