As editor of the Tabor City Tribune (N.C.), Horace Carter (1921-2009) wrote over 100 pieces for the newspaper condemning the Ku Klux Klan's activities. He and his family were threatened by the Klan, but his reporting led to federal investigations in the South, and the eventual arrest of over 100 Klan members. Carter won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 for his reporting on the Klan.
