To put things in perspective, “Carolina Connection” spoke with Robert Morgan, a former North Carolina Attorney General, U.S. Senator, and state legislator.
He was a member of the state legislature in the 1960s when the law passed, and he was a vocal supporter of it. At the time, he also argued in favor of the law in his role as an attorney for the American Legion.
He recalls the political mood of the era, when Communism was considered an imminent threat to America.
