Summary
  • "An examination of the history of the author's family and its ties to white supremacist movements."--
  • Sifting through family lore about "our Klansman" as well as public and private records, Ball reconstructs the story of his great-great grandfather, Constant Lecorgne. A white French Creole, father of five, and working class ship carpenter, Lecorgne had a career in white terror of notable and bloody completeness: massacres, night riding, masked marches, street rampages-- all part of a tireless effort that he and other Klansmen made to restore white power when it was threatened by the emancipation of four million enslaved African Americans. Ball also sought out descendants of African Americans who were once victimized by Lecorgne and his comrades, and shares their stories. -- adapted from jacket
