After years of widespread racial violence in America and claimed member increases, Dan Vernon gains rare access of seven months with the most notorious supremacist group in America, the Ku Klux Klan. During his time he followed the Traditionalist Knights to understand who really belongs to the group and whether members of the KKK are really on the rise.
The Ku Klux Klan had its origins sometime between December 1865 and August 1866 by six former officers of the Confederate army as a fraternal social club. Gradually, the klan grew to be a monsterous 6 millions members organization in the 1920’s, and today somewhere a total between 3000-6000 members.
So are the newer KKK really on the rise as klan members claim? Dan Vernon has set out to discover whether or not these statements are true or not.
