The Battle of Hayes Pond in 1958 wasn't much of a battle. But it was a major victory in the effort to stop the momentum of the Ku Klux Klan in the South.

Wednesday on Native America Calling, on the 65th anniversary of the night members of the Lumbee Tribe showed up in force to stop a KKK rally in Robeson County, we'll revisit the event and how it continues to be a source of strength and pride for a tribe as it struggles for federal recognition.
