blog purpose

Reading about Greensboro reminds us of the possibilities inherent in a community's desire to move forward, even without thet presence of a government mandate. The five casualties of that fateful day are a clear symbol of the endemic violence which led to the clash between Anti-Klan and KKK activists. However reading the commission's report contextualizes the problem in important new ways. That many felt justice was not served through state mechanisms after the event presses upon any reader the necessity for dealing with the reprecussions of conflict in a holistic manner.
