Description: This flyer, created by Concerned Citizens Against the Klan of Greensboro, urges a return to the Black Power movement of the 1960s, stating that the movement stalled in the 1970s as black leaders were “bought off, killed off, or jailed and the communities were pacified with numerous poverty programs.” The flyer invokes the memory of the early civil rights movement and mass protests, and also places the wealthy and the government alongside the Ku Klux Klan and Nazis as the ones the movement should be fighting. The flyer was most like produced in the aftermath of the November 3, 1979 Death to the Klan march at which five protesters were killed in Greensboro.
