    Editor and the Dragon: Horace Carter Fights The Klan Narrated by Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman, this documentary tells the story of Pulitzer Prize-winning publisher Horace Carter (1921-2009) and his bold reporting on the Ku Klux Klan in the pre-Civil Rights era. Carter, the 29-year-old editor of the weekly Tabor City Tribune, stood against the Klan and risking life, livelihood, friendships and his family's safety to protest the Klan's racist rhetoric and vigilantism. His courageous reports and the unwavering integrity of his weekly editorials helped lead to the first FBI investigation of the Klan during that era, and to the arrest and conviction of nearly 100 Klansmen. Archival footage and interviews with Carter, his family, Tabor City (North Carolina) residents, journalists and historians help piece together this dark chapter in American history. duration 57:03   STEREO TVPG
