Description

This image depicts the Ku Klux Klan marching through downtown Wooster. Segregation and overt racism is often thought to be a southern matter throughout the twentieth century, however that is not the case. By the early 1950’s, school segregation was prohibited by law in Ohio. That does not mean that racism and other forms of segregation did not have a large presence in Ohio. Sit-in that were happening in Chicago and Bus Boycotts in Montgomery, Alabama showed that resistance segregation was alive and well. Along side this resistance, were the powers that were attempting to put down these resistances. The Ku Klux Klan would become the largest and most wide spread hate group toward African Americans in the United States.
