Despite what many think the Klan was active throughout the country including in Minnesota where members organized fifty-one chapters in the Twin Cities, Rochester, Duluth and in smaller towns ranging from Virginia to Pipestone. These men and women threatened and intimidated many including union members, people who supported the repeal of Prohibition and their own Jewish, African American and immigrant neighbors. But they also played in town baseball teams, served as deacons in their churches, ran local businesses and were elected to political office across the state. Join Elizabeth Dorsey Hatle, author of "The Ku Klux Klan in Minnesota," for an examination of the activities of the Klan at its height in Minnesota. For more information visit
The History Center is free on Tuesday's after 5:00. Come early, have a snack or treat from the restaurant or wonder through one of the History Centers excellent exhibits. The History Center is a real treasure, come and explore, you'll discover things about our state that you never knew. We will be gathering in the back of the restaurant, check in and grab a seat. The program is slated to start at 7:00, but I suggest getting there no later then 6:30 to assure a seat. I'm not sure if this program will be in the auditorium or one of the classrooms, if it's in one of the classrooms seating is limited.
