Historical note

The "Death to the Klan" movement arose in the wake of the Greensboro Massacre, an anti-Klan march held in Greensboro, NC on November 3, 1979, that turned violent and resulted in the death of two Communist Workers Party members, and three other participants. After the acquittal of those accused of these deaths, efforts to raise awareness of the activities of the KKK, neo-Nazis, and other white supremacists groups increased in many major cities, including but not limited to San Francisco.
