Klansville U.S.A.

In this episode of American Experience we are shown first hand how the once most liberal southern state of America (North Carolina), became home to the largest Klan organisation in the country, the Ku Klux Klan. They seemed to have lay dormant for decades but in 1954 after the Supreme Court: Brown v. Board of Education decision, i.e. states running separate schools based on race were deemed to be unconstitutional, it wasn’t surprising that this ruffled a few feathers, causing some to turn to the Klan.
