Rise Of the Ku Klux Klan
The Ku Klux Klan (KKK), or simply "the Klan", is the name of three distinct past and present movements in the United States that have advocated extremist Reactionary currents such as white supremacy , white nationalism, and anti-immigration, historically expressed through terrorism aimed at groups or individuals whom they opposed.] All three movements have called for the "purification" of American society, and all are considered right wing extremist organizations.
The first Ku Klux Klan flourished in the Southern United States in the late 1860's, then died out by the early 1870's. It sought to overthrow the Republican state governments in the South during the Reconstruction Era, especially by using violence against African American leaders. With numerous chapters across the South, it was suppressed around 1871, through federal enforcement. Members made their own, often colorful, costumes: robes, masks, and Conical hats, designed to be terrifying, and to hide their identities.

Our Take On Schenck vs United States
Aviation Is A Thing!
The ability to travel long distances quickly but with relatively light loads meant that the earliest commercial freight services were mainly mail deliveries. To speed up mail deliveries the Post Office Department at one time considered putting flat roofs on Post Offices to act as landing strips.
Airplanes were initially built predominantly of lightweight materials like wood and canvas but continual developments in the aviation industry over the first decade of powered flight led to increasing use of metal parts and panels until complete all metal airplanes became the norm. 4600 American airplanes were built in 1928 and 104 different planes were exhibited at an airshow, leading Henry Ford to predict that there would have to be consolidation within the industry.

A Letter From A Black Man And His View On Racsim
My View on racism is plain. I ponder on the reasons white men cannot fathom why there can be an equal to them that looks so drastically different. I believe they are scared that we the "Negros" could potentially threaten them and their society that they have built. when in truth, we are the exact same as them and have done nothing wrong except look different. thank you for allowing me the opportunity tho share my opinion on the Roaring 20's Magazine.
