On November 3rd 1979, a group of Ku Klux Klan members and Nazis showed up in Greensboro to confront members of the Communist Workers Party. The CWP had organized a “Death to the Klan” march and rally. Gunfire erupted and four members of the CWP were killed. Rusty Jacobs has the second part of our series about the Truth and Reconciliation Commission looking into the incident.
