KKK


     Robed Klansmen walk down a street in Montgomery in 1956, as the bus boycott was underway and the movie "The Birth of a Nation" was fast becoming a recruiting film for the terrorist group.

     The Washington Post has a story about the movie reviving an all but dead organization. Note the supportive comments published by The Atlanta-Journal at the time of a cross burning on Stone Mountain:

“The rites incident to the founding of the order were most interesting and the occasion will be remembered long by the participants,” the Atlanta Constitution reported in a story headlined, “KLAN IS ESTABLISHED WITH IMPRESSIVENESS.”
