Durham Group Files For Grant In Wake Of Cross Burnings

Posted May 31, 2005 6:01 a.m. EDT

— A group in Durham will apply for an emergency grant and use it to help ease tensions after three cross burnings.

Police found fliers referencing the Ku Klux Klan near one of the crosses. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating the cases as a hate crime.

The grant will help with community mobilizations and meetings to build a commission.

A reconciliation rally is planned for Sunday in Durham.
