Ku Klux Klan in Colorado
Following World War I, Americans lamented over so many soldiers dying on the European front. A form of “white” Americanism grew, producing a hatred for foreigners, Jews, blacks and anyone else not like “us.” We’ll explore the roots, development, and demise of the Ku Klux Klan in Colorado. An estimated 10% of Colorado’s population were either members or sympathetic to the KKK in the early 1920s. We shall also learn about the history of civil rights in Colorado and how we moved from harboring intolerance to embracing equality. Presenter Ed Weising is a professional speaker and Colorado historian.
