The Libraries have acquired early access to a new Diversity and Dissent project, KKK Newspapers. This collection from Reveal Digital brings together for the first time local, regional, and national newspapers published by Klan organizations and by sympathetic publishers across the U.S. during this period. It also includes the voices from several anti-Klan newspapers.
The primary mission of Reveal Digital’s open access publishing program is to document a range of viewpoints that chronicle the historical record of 20th century America, whether driven by racial, gender, social or political motivations. The publications that make up our collections are the product of their time and place. Some contain extreme images and remarks that readers may consider offensive today. By publishing these primary source collections Reveal Digital seeks neither to affirm nor deny the political and ideological thought voiced within them. Rather we strive to expose the opinions and thoughts of their authors for scrutiny in scholarship and public discourse.
