        Ku Klux Klan Flyers

        This flyer advertises a Ku Klux Klan meeting held 13 days before the 1963 bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham. The Ku Klux Klan, a white supremacist organization active during the Civil Rights movement, was known to harass beat, and even murder African Americans to prevent their participation in the political process. With roots reaching back to the Reconstruction Era, Klan members feared growing black political strength in southern states.
