The Ku Klux Klan, police, and local authorities carried out a series of violent attacks against the activists, including arson, beatings, false arrest, and murder.
An informal discussion will follow with coffee and doughnuts provided by Friends of Waukesha Public Library. Please note that this documentary runs 130 minutes. Questions? Call 262-524-3682 or visit waukeshapubliclibrary.org.
