- This article by Susan Sawyers from the November 18, 1989, Greensboro News & Record, reports on the work of a clergy task force on race relations. The task force included longtime activist Nelson Johnson and Barbara Dua of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro among others, and found that racial tensions in Greensboro were on the rise. Recommendations included a prayer for racial harmony to be presented in churches, trips to homeless shelters and poor black neighborhoods, setting up dialogues, and education for white people on black culture and concerns. This article was saved in a scrapbook by Clarence "Curly" Harris, manager of the Greensboro Woolworth store at the time of the 1960 sit-ins.
