What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 60 in a series – The Klan gave one of its largest donations to the Rev. Bob Jones…”

October 19th, 2019

“The Klan gave one of its largest donations—$1,568 (worth $22,500 in 2016)—to the Rev. Bob Jones, to help him establish his conservative whites-only Bob Jones University.42 (The university grew out of Jones’s distress after his friend William Jennings Bryan was so humiliated in the Scopes trial.)”
