NC NAACP President, Rev. Dr. T. Anthony Spearman announced: “Dontae Sharpe should have never been arrested.  He should never have been forced to choose between truth and freedom.  He ought to have been working in his community, voting in his precinct, showing by his strong example how young men and women can organize to change the system, not get trapped in it. The NC NAACP State Conference and the Pitt County NAACP will not rest until this man of truth is free, working as a leader in our community.”

“We have a duty to address the failures of our New Jim Crow criminal injustice system and the devastating effect caging our family members is having on our communities. Every elected official and officer of the law has a part to play in redressing this wrong. Join us in our fight for freedom!  The NC NAACP has opened a hotline for the public to call 1-877-293-2839 to support Dontae’s family and  to share information about the case.”
