"St. Augustine Civil Rights Activist James Jacksondiscusses the creation of anNAACP Youth Council in St. Augustine, involvement in protests and his personal account of a confrontation with the Ku Klux Klan. “We in turn were taken out of the car at gunpoint taken in the midst of the meeting. Well, they, in turn, proceeded to separate us and to beat, you know, to jump on each and every one of us.”"
"In September 1963, Dr. Robert Hayling, “father” of the civil rights movement in St. Augustine, Fla., along with some activists, were caught spying on a Ku Klux Klan rally. The men were severely beaten. Hayling recalls, “They had beat us across the head and body and they had us piled on top of each other.”"
"In a 1977 interview, Edward McDaniel, a white southerner, relates his experience being inducted into the Ku Klux Klan some fifteen years earlier, during the height of the Civil Rights Movement. Looking back on his experiences, McDaniel expresses a surprising amount of initial ambiguity about the Klan, but eventually became an enthusiastic convert."
"A RESURGENT Ku Klux Klan rides this summer across the South. This revived Klan wears a motley garb -- well-tailored suits and how ties; the satin robes of Wizards and Cyclops (and the familiar bedsheets of lesser Knights); the threadbare work clothes of poor whites hollering "Kill the niggers!""
