If All of Buffalo Read About the Klan

Hooded Knights on the Niagara

In 1923-1924, the Ku Klux Klan set up shop in Buffalo. The Klan was not just an organization, it was an ideology of racism, anti-semitism, anti-Catholicism, and nativism. Buffalo rejected that ideology. Buffalo fought back, Buffalo fought dirty, and Buffalo won. This was the one of our finest moments as a city.

The Buffalo KKK membership list is online here.

We defeated this ideology once. We can and must do so again. Hooded Knights on the Niagara is the book that all of Buffalo needs to read right now.

At BuffaloResearch.com, local history matters, and #BlackLivesMatter, too.

Hooded Knights on the Niagara is the best book about Buffalo that no one has read
