The Ku Klux Klan (KKK) was a social group in the United States created between 1865 and 1866 by 6 men from Tennesse who were also Civil War veterans. The name Ku Klux Klan originated from the Greek word "kuklos" meaning circle translating to "circle of brothers"

murdering civil rights workers and bombing streets

  • The first klan was established between 1865-66
  • The Klan's goal was to restore white supremacy through threats of violence (i.e. murder, lynching, bombing, etc.) agaisnst those who they felt were inferior.
  • The Klan would patrol areas and attack people who didnt meet their racist ideals. Mainly African Americans.
  • The Klan slowly started to decline and was thought to have ended in the 1870's due to the resistance from other groups.

After the modern civil rights movement began in the mid-1950s, the Klan saw its third resurgence. Klansmen murdered several civil rights workers between 1955 and 1965, and infamously bombed the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1963, killing four black girls. Rather than intimidate civil rights activists, the murders of the civil rights workers and innocent girls served only to turn public opinion against the Jim Crow system. The Klan never regained the influence it had in the 1920s. It continues to exist, but with only a few thousand members scattered around the country.
