In this Greensboro Daily News article, Jack Scism and William March discusses the not guilty verdicts in the Klan/Nazis trial regarding the murders of five Communist Workers Party members at the Death to the Klan march in Greensboro, on November 3, 1979. The article reports that in response to the verdict, many community members have called for action from the city government, specifically in relation to adopting a ward system for electing city council members. Mayor Jim Melvin argued that community issues should be handled outside the realm of the shootings, and said he disagreed with the theory that the verdict reflects problems with race relations in Greensboro. The city council announced plans to discuss the findings of the Human Relations Commission's report on the November 3rd events at their next meeting, including the recommendations for a ward system, ordinances against discrimination, and increased strength of affirmative action policies. Also mentioned in the article are: Vic Nussbaum, Dr. George Simkins, Senator Henry Frye, Rev. Otis Hairston, and Rev. Chuck Klotzberger.
