Cross Burnings in Durham

Durham police are investigating three cross burnings. The first seven foot cross was set fire on the lawn of a progressive Episcopal church. The second burned on South Roxboro Street and the last was at a downtown intersection. City leaders can\’t remember any other times when such symbols of racial hatred have appeared in Durham. The police and many residents say they\’re shocked that this could happen in a city that even during the height of the Civil Rights movement was well known for its racial civility. Jessica Jones reports.
