Coming Up With Interesting Research Paper Topics About KKK
The Ku Klux Klan, is historically known for their persecution of the non-white (and especially African American) people in the early part of the last century but their activities go much further than that. They were believers of white supremacy and believed that people of other races should be denied access to the united states.
The group first surfaces in the late 1800’s in the southern states and sought to oppose the republican state governments during what was known as the reconstruction era.
