Book Title: The Black Hood of the Ku Klux Klan

Author: Jim Ruiz

Book Description:

The reason this book is special is that it began as a class assignment in a political science class in my first semester of undergraduate work. The research that began as a paper assignment for a class took on a life of its own during my graduate studies. It is a little known incident that captured the attention of the United States in 1922-23 during the height of the Ku Klux Klan's power.
