Black PansyAfter the Civil War, the Ku-Klux-Klan set out to terrorize blacks. The structure of their group was modeled after college fraternities and they sought to have fun with their get-togethers but their antics were sinister and their motives were to drive the newly-freed blacks from the South. When reading about their hierarchy, it sounds like something out of a children’s fantasy book. But what they did, was not child’s play. They were deadly serious.

Smaller localities were called “dens,” and they were ruled by a “Grand Cyclops.” The members were called “Ghouls.”Front Cover Black Lilac
