Truth and Reconciliation in Greensboro, NC

On the morning of November 3, 1979, a group of black and white demonstrators prepared to march against the Ku Klux Klan through the streets of Greensboro, North Carolina, when a caravan of Klansmen and Nazis opened fire on them. Eighty-eight seconds later, five demonstrators lay dead and ten others were wounded. Four TV stations recorded their deaths by Klan gunfire. Yet, after two criminal trials, not a single gunman spent a day in prison. Twenty-five years later, a Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the first in the United States, was formed in Greensboro. 

Join survivor Sally Bermanzohn and Pat Clark, one of the commissioners, to view – and discuss – a documentary: “Greensboro: Closer to the Truth.”
