On this day we remember that on May 24, 2015 a N.C. Highway Historical Marker was dedicated to commemorate the Greensboro Massacre. The marker can be found at the intersection of McConnell Road and Willow Road in Greensboro.
On November 3, 1979 Community Workers Party members and others gathered for an anti-Klan rally. The marchers were attacked by Ku Klux Klan members and the American Nazi Party. Dr Michael Nathan
(beloved husband of Marty Nathan and father of Leah Nathan), Cesar Cauce, James Waller, William Evan Sampson, and Sandra Neely Smith were fatally wounded.
In 2020 the Greensboro City Council formally apologized
for the massacre and acknowledged the complicity of the Greensboro Police Department.
