Biographical or Historical Data:
Founded in 1866, the Ku Klux Klan is an organization that originally empowered resistance in Southern United States to politicies that promoted the equality of African-Americans. In the 20th century, it's platform expanded to one promoting the supremacy of white Protestants over immigrants, blacks, Jews, Catholics, and organized labor. After the 1917 Russian Revolution, fear of Communism first began spreading over the United States and the Klan additionally took a stand against it.
