about this item

Directly connecting the Ku Klux Klan to religion through the organization's own words, Sánchez follows its religious rhetoric from the heyday of the 1920s to the present, a rhetoric that asserts God's intercession on its behalf. The beliefs they espouse reflect a historically older America, he says, and whereas America as a society has undergone, and is undergoing, tremendous social and cultural changes, the Klan has kept alive an antiquated cultural history predicated on race and religion that maintained a society deeply mired in white supremacist ideology.
