On November 3rd, 1979, Nazi sympathizers and members of the Ku Klux Klan opened fire on demonstrators from the Communist Workers’ Party in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Five anti-Klan demonstrators were killed that day and 10 were wounded. The Klansmen arrested for the crimes were acquitted by all-white juries.
