THIS COURSE IS NOW OVER, BUT THE RECORDING IS STILL AVAILABLE. After the Revival of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) in 1915, Klan organizer J.H. Hawkins made his way across Delmarva in the early 1920s, lecturing about “The Truth about the Ku Klux Klan” and forming local klans across Delmarva.
By examining the newspapers of the time, this three-week class will focus on: the impact of “Birth of a Nation” in the national climate of the early 20th Century and the revival of the Klan; the role of J.H. Hawkins on the growth of the Delmarva Klan in the twenties; and the opponents of the Klan and their role in its decline.
Feedback from Phil’s last course:
“Phil was well prepared and provided a variety of readings before each of the classes. I found it interesting that he was able to weave so many different themes together. He used many positive teaching strategies which encouraged the learners to participate and he showed he valued our responses.”
“Always enjoy learning more of our local history and how it intersects with a wider horizon.”
