CWP Marches Dead in Peaceful Procession
November 13, 1979
Eddie Hardin was a student at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and news editor for The Carolinian in 1979.
This November 13, 1979, article from The Carolinian, the student newspaper of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG), discusses a funeral march held November 11, 1973, to commemorate the deaths of five Communist Workers Party members killed at the Death to the Klan march on November 3, 1979. Some one thousand police officers and National Guard members outnumbered the four hundred marchers who were present. The march was peaceful and without incident, although there were numerous arrests for possession of weapons. Cold, rainy weather was cited as a factor contributing to the low attendance.
