This October 14, 1980 Greensboro Daily News editorial discusses the community response almost one year after the violence at the Death to the Klan march on November 3, 1979, at which five Communist Workers Party members were killed. The author argues for increased discussion among Greensboro's diverse communities. While commending the police department and the Human Relations Commission for their response, the author encourages more city officials and civic organizations to actively discuss issues like the ward system, downtown renewal, mass transit, housing, and black youth unemployment. This is the third and final article in a series on the topic.

This article was clipped and saved in a scrapbook about the twentieth anniversary of the 1960 lunch counter sit-ins by Clarence “Curly” Harris, manager of the Greensboro Woolworth store at the time of the sit-ins.
