While the Ku Klux Klan is often seen as bizarre or mysterious, the Klan's violence has long been just a particularly sensational example of violence white racist individuals and groups have consistently brought against black people since the middle of the 19th century. This talk explores how the Klan's terrorism, in the 1860s, 1920s, 1960s, and recently, has mirrored and shaped this much broader culture of white-on-black violence.
