Black/White Perceptions: Race Relations in Greensboro
North Carolina Advisory Committee on Civil Rights
The North Carolina Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights investigated the 1969 Dudley High/A&T protests and the 1979 Death to the Klan march, both of which happened in Greensboro and ended with violence and fatalities.
This study was initiated by the North Carolina Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights as a result of conflicting assessments regarding the murder of five Communist Workers Party members at the Death to the Klan march, in Greensboro, North Carolina, on November 3, 1979. The report's findings and recommendation were based on information gathered in a field investigation which took place in early 1980. The bulk of the report contains statements from a wide range of Greensboro residents regarding their perceptions about race relations in Greensboro. In addition, the report gives an overview of Greensboro, a detailed analysis of the November 3 event, and recommendations for the citizens of Greensboro.
