This is our second “It’s Not Just the South” program, and there’s no more apt description for a discussion of the Ku Klux Klan and Colorado. Largely thought of as a Southern movement, the Klan in fact controlled Denver politics for a number of years in the 1920s.
To talk about the Klan, past and present, we’ve assembled this group:
Charlene Porter, a fourth generation Denverite and author of Bold Faced Lies, a book about the early days of the KKK in Denver.
Dennis Gallagher, former City of Denver auditor, who will discuss the hatred the KKK had for Italians, Catholics, and the Irish as well as for African-Americans.
Betty Jo Brenner, Colorado Humanities Program Coordinator, who will discuss the role of women in the Colorado KKK.
Jim Kroll, Director of the Denver Public Library's Western History and Genealogy, who will bring Klan paraphernalia and other articles from the era.
DeBorah Bivens, retired trade unionist and current civil and human rights activist, who marched in opposition to the Klan in the contemporary South, getting arrested in the process.
Social hour begins at 5:30 p.m. with program from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
