The fiftieth anniversary of these events is being observed and
explored with the production of a documentary tentatively titled,
Confronting the Klan: The W. Horace Carter Story. Organized by the
Center for the Study of the American South at the University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the project is funded with private
donations and is being produced by Memory Lane Productions, Inc.
of Durham, North Carolina. Mr. Carter and his family are fully cooperating
with the project.
Please watch as we continue to develop this site with information
about the film project and Horace Carter’s life and times.
We invite your suggestions and want to hear about the stories, personal
contacts, photos, film or other memorabilia that you have or know
of relating to the subject matter.
