“The Ku Klux Klan in Calvin Coolidge’s America”

Mr. Jerry L. Wallace also has a timely and superb essay on the Foundation’s website. He cuts away the years of misinformed opinions about the KKK and the Twenties. He shows how Coolidge espoused the ideals affirmed by the Declaration one hundred and fifty years before. To Coolidge, character and civil responsibility are what mattered not a person’s color or ethnicity. How radical a thought!
