What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 11 in a series – ” Local KKKs were often listed in city directories…”

August 14th, 2019

“WHAT ALL THESE FOUNDERS SHARED was respectability; however much they exaggerated or lied, they passed as honorable citizens, and that was key to the Klan’s success. It was not secret because it did not need to be. It remained legal and reputable. Local KKKs were often listed in city directories, “along with sewing clubs and agricultural societies,” as sociologist Kathleen Blee put it.”

The Second Coming of the KKK: The Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s and the American Political Tradition by Linda Gordon
