Elizabeth Wheaton grew up in Chicago and moved to Greensboro in 1969. She studied the shootings that occurred at a death to the Klan rally in Greensboro in 1979 for the Institute of Southern Studies and for Southern Exposure. She later reported on two federal trials of the case for United Press International. Her book, Codename GREENKIL: The 1979 Greensboro Killings, is a study of this event and the parties and motives involved. Wheaton works for the American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina.
