Prof. Blee’s article on women in the Ku Klan Klan is fascinating. As we’re examining this week, the first decades of the 20th century were tumultuous: there was enormous social change, the U.S. was becoming “modern” because of the surge in industrialism, the economy was hot (until it crashed in 1929), immigration was, as it always is, a controversial topic, the nation was becoming diverse, more and more formerly disenfranchised people (women and minorities) were asserting their rights. Wow! A lot was going on. Into this mix come women who find the right wing politics of the Ku Klux Klan very appealing. Why? What was their agenda and what were their tactics? When citing the sources (Chicago style) in the paper, please use Parentheses rather than footnotes.
