1979 Klan-CWP Clash Revisited in Greensboro

Record #:
On November 3, 1979, the Communist Workers Party held a “Death to the Klan” rally in Greensboro. A clash with the Ku Klux Klan resulted, leaving five CWP members shot dead in the streets and several wounded. Several Klansmen and Nazi party members were charged with murder, but were acquitted in both state and federal courts. Recently activist groups in Greensboro set up a Truth and Reconciliation tribunal to revisit the event and issue a report in April 2006.
