If you do not have a computer for each student, you can present the tutorial class activity completing each activity as you progress through the tutorial. If you have a smartboard, students can complete the activity at their seat, individually or with partners, and then come to the smartboard to present the answer. If you have computers or a laptop for each student, students can complete the tutorial and add answers as they progress through the tutorial at their own pace. Either way, students can then use the worksheet as a study guide for a quiz or the End of Course Exam.
Power Point #1 – The Civil Rights Movement – The Ku Klux Klan contains 30 editable slides.
Founded in 1866, as a social club in Pulaski, TN including many former Confederate veterans, the first Ku Klux Klan was founded as a charitable organization to help widows and orphans of the American Civil War. The first Klan was created in the image of other secret societies of the day. The hierarchical organization with local chapters housed under a national umbrella structure.
In the summer of 1867, local branches of the Klan met in a general organizing convention and established what they called an “Invisible Empire of the South.” Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest was chosen as the first leader or “grand wizard,” of the Klan.
The organization of the Klan coincided with the beginning of the 2nd phase of post-Civil War Reconstruction, put into place by the more radical members of the Republican Party in Congress.
The victorious Union government imposed a version of martial law on the south and began to enforce laws designed to end segregation against black citizens. Under its provisions, the South was divided into 5 military districts, and each state was required to approve the 14th Amendment, which granted “equal protection” of the Constitution to former slaves and enacted universal male suffrage.
When a constitutional amendment granted black men the right to vote in 1870, the Klan became a vehicle for white southern resistance to the Republican Party’s Reconstruction-era policies aimed at establishing political and economic equality for blacks.
Over time the KKK became an undeniably terrorist organization - but what made the Klan an especially insidious terrorist organization, and a threat to civil liberties, was that it functioned as the unofficial paramilitary arm of Southern segregationist governments. This allowed its members to kill with impunity, and allowed Southern segregationists to eliminate activists by force without alerting federal authorities.
Although the Klan is much less active today, it will be remembered as an instrument of cowardly Southern politicians who hid their faces behind hoods, and their ideology behind an unconvincing facade of patriotism.
