The Ku Klux Klan is notorious for being a secret organization that enforced white supremacy after the civil war by terrorizing African Americans.  After the civil rights movement of the sixties it faded from public attention and has been generally regarded as an embarrassing part of the country’s past that is thankfully behind us.  Today many fear that the ideas the Klan stood for may be gaining legitimacy in the public domain.  Largely forgotten is that there was a brief period in the 1920s when the KKK was a main-stream national institution with membership in the millions that enjoyed broad respectability and public approval.  We will review the Klan’s history and look at parallels between that period and today.
