What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 1 in a series – “These quintessentially American celebrations were Ku Klux Klan affairs…”

August 5th, 2019

This new series is an ongoing collection of quotes from the books I am currently reading. — Douglas


“BIG BARBECUE 20 BRASS BANDS —High Tight Wire Walking, 100 Feet in the Air Wild Bronco Busting—Outlaw Horses—Imported Texas Cowboys National Speakers—200 Horsemen—Evening Fire Works Illustrated Parades—Visit Valparaiso University2 The Sand Dunes—See the Calumet Region3

These quintessentially American celebrations were Ku Klux Klan affairs, held frequently during the peak of its power in the 1920s. If we are to understand this second coming of the Klan, we must surrender some of our preconceptions about it.”
