Special danger in Robeson justifies court injunction.

Record Number: 

“Special danger in Robeson justifies court injunction.” Charlotte Observer 19 March 1966. 


Superior Court Judge William A. Johnson issued a temporary injunction barring a planned Ku Klux Klan rally near Maxton.  It was feared that the rally would lead to another near-violent confrontation like the one in 1958.  The affidavits brought before Judge Johnson asserted that several Lumbees had received hate letters that may have been from Klansmen; the Klan members were now highly armed; and Pembroke stores were nearly sold out of ammunition.
