Today (11-3-2014) marks the 35th Anniversary of the Greensboro Massacre, when 5 organizers in Greensboro, NC were murdered by the Klan and Nazis as they demonstrated for racial and economic justice. Highlander is honored to carry on the legacy of César Cauce, Mike Nathan, Bill Sampson, Sandy Smith and Jim Waller through the Greensboro Justice Fund Fellowship at Highlander Center. We’ll be announcing details for the next class of the fellowship soon; in the meantime, you can learn more about these community organizers and their legacy at the links below:
