Bennett College to Receive Major Research Archive

For the past two years, the Greensboro Truth and Reconciliation Commission has been investigating the shooting of five people at an anti-Klan rally in Greensboro, North Carolina, in November 1979. The commission is scheduled to release its final report in April.

Now it has been announced that the thousands of documents, photographs, and video and audio tapes that were presented to the commission will be housed at the Carnegie Negro Library at Bennett College, the historically black women’s college in Greensboro. One of the people killed at the 1979 rally was a Bennett alumna who had served as president of the student body.
