New documentary to explore Klan history in North Carolina
A new PBS documentary focuses on the Ku Klux Klan and the presence they had in North Carolina in the 1960s.
The Salisbury Post reported that “Klansville, U.S.A.” will broadcast at 9 p.m. Tuesday on PBS. It is based in part on the book of the same name.
The special will reportedly look at when Rowan County and other parts of North Carolina were the focus on Klan activities.
The Tar Heel state reportedly had more than 10,000 KKK members in the mid-1960s.
Several people with Salisbury and Rowan County connections are interviewed for the program, according to the paper.
