Retired agent Cecil Moses served in the FBI for 42 years. He worked as a clerical employee and then investigative specialist for 12 years before receiving an appointment to be a special agent where he developed an expertise in criminal and civil rights matters. In this episode of FBI Retired Case File Review, Cecil Moses reviews the Greensboro Massacre, where in November of 1979, during a protest rally, a shootout with the Ku Klux Klan and American Nazis left five members of the Communist Workers Party (CWP) dead and seven members seriously injured. Two klansmen were also injured. At the time of this incident, Cecil Moses was the assistant special agent in charge of the Charlotte Division in North Carolina, managed the FBI investigation, and testified during the subsequent state, federal, and civil trials to hold those accountable for the Greensboro Massacre to bring those accountable for the Greensboro Massacre to justice.

Before Charlottesville there was Greensboro.

During his agent career, he worked in the Cleveland, Omaha, Jackson, and Memphis Divisions, was assigned to the Civil Rights Section of the Criminal Division and the Office of Planning and Evaluation at FBI Headquarters, and served as the Special Agent in Charge of the Birmingham Division. He ended his Bureau career as a member of the Senior Executive Service in the FBI Laboratory. Currently, he operates his farm and business with his son, a recently retired agent.
