- Michael Donald was murdered by Ku Klux Klan members on March 20, 1981, and his body was hanged from a tree on Herndon Avenue in Mobile. His two killers were arrested in 1983 and were ultimately convicted, but Mrs. Donald also filed a wrongful death suit against the Klan. She was awarded $7 million, a financial penalty that bankrupted the organization; in lieu of payments, Mrs. Donald was given the deed to the UKA's national headquarters in Tuscaloosa.
