Mapping Project Shows Spread of KKK in the US

Virginia Commonwealth University has launched a new digital mapping project showing the spread of the Ku Klux Klan across the United States. (and for those of you who thought the KKK was only a southern thing… no.) “The project, ‘Mapping the Second Ku Klux Klan, 1915-1940,’ is an animated, online map that illustrates the rise of the second Klan, which was founded in Atlanta in 1915 and spread rapidly across the country to total more than 2,000 local units, known as Klaverns.”
