Faculty Mentor: Dr. Darra Mulderry, History

Historians on the Ku Klux Klan have only recently begun to re-examine the place of the Klan in American history, coming to the unsettling conclusion that the Klan and its message were more widely accepted than many previous historians acknowledged. However, this new revisionist history of the Klan lacks any thorough consideration of the experiences of Klan victims. In my thesis, I examine how Black and Catholic newspapers from 1916-1922 describe the activities and ideologies of the KKK so that I can then compare their accounts of the Klan with those of contemporary historians.
