The Editor and the Dragon: Horace Carter Fights The Klan [DVD]
The Center for the Study of the American South
Premieres on UNC-TV on January 9th
The Center for the Study of the American South and Memory Lane Productions are proud to present The Editor and the Dragon, narrated by Morgan Freeman.
In 1953, UNC graduate Horace Carter earned a Pulitzer Prize for Meritorious Public Service for his reporting on the Ku Klux Klan. Carter persevered in the face of death threats, including those against his family, and used the editorial authority of North Carolinaís Tabor City Tribune to protest the Klanís racist rhetoric and vigilantism. Carterís bold reporting and the unwavering integrity of his editorials helped lead to the first federal intervention in the South during that era and to the arrest and conviction of nearly 100 klansmen.
