What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 64 in a series – “Vigilantes occupied a central place in Klansmen’s traditions…”

October 24th, 2019

“Vigilantes occupied a central place in Klansmen’s traditions and venerations. In their recruitment campaigns they frequently showed the virulently racist film Birth of a Nation, in which the protagonist, Klan Grand Dragon Ben Cameron, and his mounted followers saved “white womanhood” from the “savage lust” of black men. The film not only intensified latent racism but also stirred the imagination of Klansmen longing to be equally heroic.”

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