KKK in the 1930's
Transcript of KKK in the 1930's
2000 3,000 After the breakup of the second Klan, the name "Ku Klux Klan" began to be used by several independent groups. The following table (on the next slide) shows the change in the Klan's estimated membership over time. Starting in the years of the 1950s, a large number of the individual Klan groups started to resist the civil rights movement. This resistance involved numerous acts of violence and intimidation KKK in Civil Rights movement in the 1940's KKK in the 21st century Even tho it is often still discussed in American politics as representing the quintessential "fringe" end of the far-right spectrum, today the group only exists in the form of isolated, scattered groups with a total membership numbering no more than a few thousand. In a 2002, the Jewish Anti-Defamation League wrote "Today, there is no such thing as the Ku Klux Klan. Fragmentation, decentralization, and decline have continued unabated." Despite the large number of rival KKK's, the media and popular discourse generally speaks of the Ku Klux Klan, as if there was only one organization. The American Civil Liberties Union continues to provide legal support to various factions of the KKK in defense of their First Amendment rights to hold public rallies, parades, and marches, and their right to field political candidates. The lynching of a African-American in the early 1990's Conclusion To conclude my presentation on the group KKK, i believe that the Ku Klux Klan was always a popular choice to the americans. The KKK was very popular back in the early 1900's and around every 10 years the population would change dramatically. In the era of the Great Depression, the KKK had lost over 4 million klan members because everyone had went broke. The KKK is still an active group today, but it is very uncommon to see a big civil rights protest these days. Introduction In the 1930s, the people that lived in South United States of America would be more racist then the Northern States. Taking in that in to consideration, the racism was one of the biggest parts in the years of 1930's. Through the examanation of the years, The group KKK and the white supremacist, it was easy to notice that racism was a root to the Great Depression era. It effected a lot of people back in the day.

Racism was one of the problems in To Kill A Mockingbird and the 1930's. "While everyone in Maycomb faces this same choice, it’s the jury alone whose verdict will decide Tom’s fate. The decision the jury faces is not, however, whether Tom is innocent or guilty, but simply whether the prosecution has presented enough evidence to prove Tom’s guilt beyond a shadow of a doubt. Atticus says no, Jem strongly agrees, but in the end, the jury does not. Does the jury actually think Tom raped Mayella, or are they just afraid to say otherwise?" To Kill A mocking Bird, Harper Lee
