Frazier Glenn Miller, charged in Kansas killings at Jewish Center, participated in deadly Greensboro confrontation

Posted by on Mon, Apr 14, 2014 at 8:23 AM

Frazier Glenn Miller was 39 years old and a leader in the North Carolina white supremacist movement in 1979 when he participated in a deadly confrontation in Greensboro between the Ku Klux Klan and the Nazis on one side and on the other, black and white members of the Communist Party, who were holding an anti-racist rally.

Now Miller, 73, has been charged with killing three people at a Jewish Community Center in Kansas. He  is the founder and former leader of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. He formed the Carolina Knights while living in Angier, N.C., in Harnett County, but has been living in Aurora, Mo., for several years.

His account of that day in Chapter 3 of this book A White Man Speaks Out. (A word of caution: The content is troubling.) 

During that 1979 Greensboro massacre, 40 members of the Klan and the American Nazi Party killed five anti-Klan demonstrators and wounded nine others; however no one was ever convicted. In fact, the police stood by as the shootings happened. On the 25th anniversary of the killings, Democracy Now interviewed two of the survivors; here is a transcript. The incident has been the subject of films, books and newspaper articles.

Sally Avery Bermanzohn, published a book, Through Survivor's Eyes, about the incident and the Truth And Reconciliation Commission that followed it.

According to CBS News, Miller also founded the White Patriot Party and was the subject of a nationwide manhunt in 1987 for violating the terms of his bond while appealing a North Carolina conviction for operating a paramilitary camp. The search ended after federal agents found Miller and three other men in an Ozark mobile home, which was filled with hand grenades, automatic weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition.
