The New England Klan

Mar 29, 2012

Many Americans know the history of the KKK in the South but there is A Little Known History of Discrimination in New England: The Ku Klux Klan Attacks on Franco-Americans in the first half of the 20th century -  that's the name of a presentation that will be given by Eileen Angelini. She's a professor of French at Canisius College and was named a recipient of a 2010-2011 Canada-U.S. Fulbright Award as a Visiting Research Chair in Globalization and Cultural Studies at McMaster University.

Angelini will be at the Connecticut Historical Society on March 30 at 8:00 pm in an event sponsored by Real Art Ways. She talks about the KKK in their discrimination of the French-speaking population coming from Québec.
