Keep America American: The Klan in Connecticut
September 14 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Connecticut Historical Society Hartford, CT United States
What led to the re-emergence of the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920s? What kind of Klan activity occurred in CT, and what were the motivations and goals of those who joined? And how did the government and the people of CT respond?
Adult Programs Manager Natalie Belanger will walk you through the rise and fall of the Connecticut Klan in the 1920s using Klan-related materials from our manuscript archive, including pamphlets, registration lists, and even song lyrics, as well as newspaper stories from the time.
