after reading this story…readers will see the United States of America in a way you may have never seen it before.”

– Oswald Mould

From its original sin of slavery, we hoped America would have changed its ways with the Emancipation and the Reconstruction period. However, its journey through darkness was to continue with the birth of the Ku Klux Klan. They ushered in one of the ugliest, most diabolical periods in American history known as the Jim Crow era. Behind the scenes for over a century the Klan terrorized the emancipated people. They lynched them, burned them, murdered them, shot them and so doing killed thousands of these freed people in the name of white supremacy. Their use of the noose to strike fear in the heart of minority is still ongoing. This is a story of three men, one who defied the Klan another who took Klan ideology to new heights and another who tried to heal.
