The Ku Klux Klan in Tipton, Indiana — 4 Comments

  1. Well done Joy. The most surprising facts in the book to me, were the high percentage of Indiana men who were members, and the prevalence of the Klan using protestant churches to spread their message and swell their ranks.

  2. Thank you for this article! It contained both facts AND emotions to show that the KKK is bad. You were a wise eight year old and you are a wise 61 year old too! I’m impressed by the research you put into this. Continue the fight (whether it be against KKK mentality OR being put down or shushed by others)!

  3. I just read that book too. My great_grandmother was a member. If other members of my family weren’t, it was just because they weren’t joiners, not because they disagreed.

  4. You are a brave and vigilant person, Joy. I’m glad you are standing up for what is right and that you are doing what you can to change things for the better.

    I suspect that my grandfather may have been a member of the KKK in northern Louisiana around the same time period.
