KKK Convention in Atlanta

Over 600 delegates from 38 states attended a Ku Klux Klan convention in Atlanta. They overwhelmingly voted against a motion to restore use of hoods to hide their faces. After voting to raise $1 million in 1942 to promote “Americanism,” they adjourned and reassembled at Stone Mountain to burn a cross.
