What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 55 in a series – ““Klanspeople also celebrated community rites—christenings, weddings, and funerals—in Klan style”

October 11th, 2019

“Klanspeople also celebrated community rites—christenings, weddings, and funerals—in Klan style. (See figure 21.) Sometimes nonmembers attended these ceremonies, and in those cases they again served to legitimate the Klan and present it as nonthreatening. Klan ministers, known as Kludds, conducted the ceremonies, surrounded by Klan officers and sacred symbols, in turn surrounded by Klanspeople in full regalia.”

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