Oregon's Klan in the 1920s: The rise of hate | Oregon Experience

Oregon Public Broadcasting

One hundred years ago, the Ku Klux Klan spread throughout Oregon and the entire country.

The 1920s era KKK gained millions of members with an agenda of white supremacy, antiimmigration, and nationalistic patriotism. For a time, tens of thousands of Oregonians joined or supported the notorious hate group, and Klan parades were held in communities all over the state. Ultimately, the Klan generated fear and hatred as a moneymaking scheme.

The 1920s era KKK didn't last long, but it left a disturbing legacy that still affects the state today.

“Oregon Experience” examines ‘Oregon's Klan in the 1920s: The rise of hate.’
