Description: This June 27, 1982, advertisement in the Greensboro News & Record, placed by the Greensboro Justice Fund, discussed the group's concerns over the federal grand jury probe into the 1979 Greensboro Massacre. The group was concerned about possible federal law enforcement involvement in the incident and about the possibility that some facts may not be presented and that the probe may degenerate into a “witchhunt” against those with “unpopular views”.
