In this July 27, 2012 photo, Charles, right, and Te'Andrea Wilson pose for photos in front of the First Baptist Church in Crystal Springs, Miss. Just days before they were to be wed at the church, the Wilsons were told the wedding would not be permitted because some members of the congregation didn't want a black couple to be married there. The couple had been attending the church and had plans to join. The wedding was moved to a nearby church and officiated by the First Baptist pastor, Rev. Stan Weatherford.
