Description: This flyer produced and distributed by the Greensboro Justice Fund presents the complicated evidence and time line of court cases related to the murder of five Communist Workers Party members at the Death to the Klan rally in Greensboro, North Carolina, on November 3, 1979. One of those killed was Sandy Smith, and information about her life and work are outlined on the flyer. Although the exact date of the flyer is unknown, it appears to have been produced after a federal grand jury seated in 1982 began hearings to investigate the original trial as a violation of civil rights.
