"Mother were old time race. People and the context of that doesn't mean they were racist it. May you were an african american who knew your culture history and if you grew up in a house like that like i did you knew of the name and you knew the song and you're aware of who wrote the song so i think within african american communities if you grew up in a community in which your parents were were garvey. I'ts a members of marcus. Garbage united negro improvement association. Or like my. My mom was a recruiter membership. Recruited end up lacey pe- so she was an activist minded person. If you grow up in that in that environment. I would even say if you grow up in the church. You probably were aware of who he was. I think as time has gone on. Particularly the transition went from civil rights to the early to late nineteen sixties emerges of black power. It's best to say that he was more of a conservative he was he was not a radical like garvey. He was more of a conservative. There were other left of center radicals during the harlem renaissance period. I'd say in many ways of invisible man author. Ralph ellison left of center of of. So they're they're they're relatively the contemporaries but ellison is left of center birthdays. I even wkbd. Boys moves more to the left. Then johnson johnson is pushing for his people but he's not calling for a total destruction of american capitalism. He's calling marcus garvey. In many ways garvey him agreed in the sense. That garvey is a cultural nationalist. He's calling for for black folks directly see themselves differently culturally but when it came economically garvey's calling for capitalism black capitalism booker t. washington janesville. The johnson is calling for capitalism black capitalism. Burs you look at ralph l. saying look at wbz voice they move left of center and as we transition from the civil rights to black power. I mean i would even say toys. Into dr king's life one of the reasons why he's assassinated because he moves from just not only the beloved community but free feeding the poor and that seeing a capitalist system able to meet the needs of the poor unless something radically changed he didn't see that happening that position of moving left of center and challenging the validity and the capacity of capitalism never happened among james weldon johnson and i think that may be one of the reasons as black power activists like stokely carmichael h rap brown and other folks. They didn't look too. James weldon johnson as somebody that we should keep talking about. Because they didn't seem as radical off the panthers wouldn't have talked about him the ideal the negro national anthem. Remember our folks. We're not calling for the term negro to them to conservative calling for black african. That's not the kind of terminology. James bolton johnson proposed as yet of the of crisis nor new seat in his literature his speeches fighting against jim crow fighting against white supremacy. But you're doing away that later advocates black power would consider you conservative. Isn't it funny. How those like a sliding scale over time somebody who seemed radical becomes conservative or vice versa. As we wrap up here. You said that a lot of people didn't see him as someone we should still be talking about. But obviously you do. And i do. Which is why. I invited you to have this conversation. Why should we still be talking about him. What do you see as his legacy today. I think key documents appeared american history that we all have to know particularly when you think about some of the white supremacist activities. That go on now. I mean there's there's a scene in the or by the colored man in which the protagonist is in. I think it's right outside making georgia and he unawares walks into a town were a lynching is being organized and happens right in front of them like he's boarding and a house is a border at our house and all of a sudden he hears this commotion in town and he kind of pulls up his shade a little bit to see a lynching mob is mobilizing in a man is lynch and he watches all this. May we see similar. things happen. Actually where i live here in the state of massachusetts there is an investigation that protesters forced the local district attorney to take up on a young black girl. Six years old name michaela miller who was found in the woods in net for the same town where the boston marathon starts. She found in the woods after being jumped the night before reported this to the police and then the next morning they find her connected to a tree with a belt around her necker. Sounds like lynch to me. I mean so janesville. Johnson is documenting these kind of things. He's documenting the good bad and ugly of his time period. Turn of the century up until the nineteen fifties and the fact that you have a book that a college professor like me is using and express his all these things not only is he covering life for african americans. Georgia's lifetime but the autobiography next color. Man spins quite a bit of time over in europe where he gets to see the experience of black expats living in europe. It is a fascinating description of life and then add to that. If you're into food like man you are. There's all this documentation of what people doing including the scenes in new york in which he's eating at some of the first chinese restaurants that exist at the time. So it's just the stories of the speakeasy during that time. I guess you would almost call speakeasy that clubs. That are there. And he's documenting also the experience of your light enough in complexion or what. My students call today color. 'isms your light enough to assembly into white society and then you have to make the decision to do so. The protagonist is the offspring of a wealthy white southern family and relationship. That happens between one of the one of the older children. College age children are this wealthy family and the white domestic servant who was a teenager to this is this is the discussion and you know how do you how do you. How do you deal with it as a family when something happens away. Wealthy payment deal with it. And how do you deal with as a black woman. Who's in his love affair with this man who has power and money but refuses to accept who you are and the child that you sire. I mean it's just so much there that still goes on now as as my wife likes to say i she she coined this term. So i'm going give her credit for the protagonist is she calls it ambiguously black. You can't really tell who he is. And i challenged your your audience to look at the tv commercials. That are happening now for the first time. You're seeing these commercials. And which if it's a couple there. It's usually a black man with a white spouse or it may be ambiguous looking woman as my mother. A woman has got flying buttermilk for the white man and then have children. That looks like this sony. Things we're seeing happening in terms of marketing and on the tv. He's talking about at deterred of the century. How're those people treated what jobs they have. What kind of exceptions did they have by a white society. What kind of acceptance or rejection did they have my.

There's a clansman watching you. Yeah. Oregon and Oklahoma were particular centers of clan vigilence committee violence, the second coming of the KKK summarizes, quote, three Oregon cases known as the Oregon outrageous captured widespread Presbyterian when night writers terrified their victims with such lynching threats. J F hail a piano salesman white was accused of illicit sexual affairs. And the would Lynch's demanded that he break off the improper relationships and may have also been targeted because he owed money that a clansman was having trouble collecting Sam Johnson described as part Mexican was accused of stealing chickens and being an idler Arthur Burr, an African American boot black accused of bootlegging receive the worst treatment vigilantes abducted him and took him to the very crest of the siskiyou mountains with a strung him up and let him down three times releasing him. They fired revolvers near his feet demanding that he leave the air permanently. Yelling. Can you? Run inward though. Charges were brought against three groups of clansman in each case. Juries acquitted the culprits on the grounds that because the victims were morally bad bitch, anti punishment benefited the community by contrast, Oklahoma, Indiana. Kansas and southern Illinois locations that were as much southern as northern experienced a great deal of actual clan. Violence, whippings tar, and feathering and lynchings and all four places some degree of racial. Segregation was in place in Klan violence hope to keep it in place an Oklahoma clan. Provoked violence became so widespread with reported one flogging for every night of the year that the governor placed parts of the state under martial law clan. Efforts got him impeached in nineteen Twenty-three Oklahoma law officers sometimes handed suspects over to clan. Whipping parties or even participated in the beatings in Kansas clansman, abducted, anti clan, mayor tied him to a tree and laid thirty stripes on his bare back in bloody Williamson as one southern Illinois county became known, the local clan and the anti saloon league merged into the Williamson county law enforcement league which soon became run by the clan attacks on the operators of the wide open bars produced lethal battles in nineteen twenty four and twenty five involving gunmen in the deployment of military forces in ended by forcing the anti Klan sheriff out of office, these armed skirmishes killed twenty people. So do not want to be ignored. The vice still happening. This wasn't the overarching lake. It wasn't the purpose of the clan was more about money. But also the violence was occurring within the society was fine with this. Yes is not a counter cultural act, again, they were acquitted generally when they were brought to trial because most people were fine with what most white people were fine with what they were doing like vigilante Cup figure. Exactly taking care of business because the government's not going to do it. So horribly violent but not horribly violent against the wishes of the majority of their white Protestant injury now. And in fact, we've kind of seen as heroes by a lot of people, right? Which was true only in the south for the original KKK gray north was not a gal racist Batman to give racist. Batman, exactly. An America's always loved the vigilante bad ass. That's the punisher but racist, right? Yeah. In one thousand nine hundred five the K K K even carried out an attack on the home of the young Malcolm X when he and his parents lived in north Omaha. Here's a quote from Malcolm's autobiography it actually is. How is a by starts when my mother was pregnant with me. She told me later a. The of hooded Ku Klux Klan writers galloped up to our home in Omaha. Nebraska one night surrounding the house brandishing their, shotguns and rifles. They shouted for my father to come out. My mother went to the front door and opened it standing where they could see her pregnant condition. She told him that she was alone with three small children, and that my father was away preaching in Milwaukee. The clansman shouted threats and warnings at her that we had better get out of town because the good Christian white people were not going to stand for. My father's spread in trouble. Among the good negroes of Omaha with the back to Africa preachings of Marcus Garvey, my father. The Reverend Earl little was a Baptist minister, a dedicated organizer for Marcus Aurelius, garvey's you in a United negro improvement association with the help of such disciples as my father Garvey from his headquarters in New York City's Harlem was raising the banner of black race purity in exhorting, the negro masses to return to their ancestry African homeland a cause which had made Garvey the most controversial black man on earth still shouting threats. The clansman finally spurred their horses and galloped around the house shattering every window pay with their gun butts than they wrote off into the night there. Torches flaring as suddenly as they had come terrifying. Yeah. It's horrifying now. Like, all good and bad pyramid. Schemes the clan. Pad to come to an end was finally brought down not by the US government because probably Muslim this government was fine with it. But by the incompetence, greed and corruption of its leaders. It's always it's always that with these kinds of far-right gangs. Philip FOX editor of the imperial Nighthawk made major clan newspaper was sentenced to life imprisonment for murdering another klansman he considered a rival Hiram Evans called it. A personal affair governor at Jacksonville. Indiana clansman was indicted for bribery. Officers of the clan Bank were also indicted for embezzlement and grand larceny, the recounting. The scandals in arrests a fight with the FBI that led to nineteen people being charged members cut, drinking and bootlegging and paying for back alley abortions. They picked a fight with J. Edgar Hoover, not a smart guy to pick a five in the nineteen twenty four really bad guy too. In that period of time. They did not win that the final nail in the KKK coffin was the conviction of Indiana. Grand? Dragon Stevenson wing talked about earlier for kidnapping raping and murdering his secretary now that only the classiest high class, I mean, I was waiting to be like white collar like tax thing. I know. Yeah. Paying for the tort terrible thing. He did. Well, and here's here's it's actually even worse than it sounds because he did not technically murdered her. He raped her in assaulted her and then she killed herself. But the jury convicted him of murder because they believed he'd ruined her. Which is also why she killed herself like even worse than right? Just because it's the twenty s and it was a garbage time to exist. Yeah. It's messed up. But Stevenson went to fuck in prison. I think so. Yeah, he was commanding second degree murder. Yeah. My nineteen twenty seven the KKK had gone him. It's high of like four million members to less than three hundred and fifty thousand active members nationwide. It never quite went extinct entirely men continue wearing Klan robes and being racist up until the modern day, but the giant money making and political enterprise that it once was fell apart. Are they're still dues. Maybe an individual chapters, but there's no no not structure, a Syria was, yeah, there's some people that try to be that. But like it's pretty shadows of the legacy of the KKK outside of its existence as an MLM and the vigilante violence. It inspired is unclear during tight the KKK was extremely politically active, but there is substantial debate as to whether or not at actually influenced politics on a mask sale. A number of clan back candidates were elected and the clan was a massive fundraiser. But that Harvard studies analysis claim that the actual political treatments of the group were fairly minimal just because those people were already gonna get elected. They want elected because they were Klansmen. Everybody was fucking racist. Right right there. Just happened to be in the clan. However in the conclusion of the second coming of the KKK, Linda, Gordon makes this note some scholars and contemporary observers have seen the nineteen twenties northern clan as a failure. Because it was short lived in because it's campaigns against Catholics and Jews did not manage to confine them to second-class citizenship. But transients is common to most social movements. Moreover, the clan declined in part because it had triumphed in several respects state eugenics laws, providing for forcible sterilization of those of defective stock spread to thirty states and those labeled effective we're typically the poor people of color. The biggest clan victory was immigration restriction and imperial wizard. Evans repeatedly claimed credit for its passage. I mean, it is pretty disappointing that their eventual downfall or decline was not because people started to know better or like people stood up like this whole story. I'm sitting here thinking like, yeah. But when does it like, oh this person like there's this big altercation in people started public opinion started to change? Nope. It was fine with the racism and the vigilante murder. Yeah. It was the abortion thing that really. Back alley abortions really turned America against him hooray. We. I know the wall stuff the immigration stuff is always. So fascinating. Like, what do you think these things align with like, maybe it's even like you recognize that other people who aren't white have invented things you like like some Brera. Guys without Mexicans. How are you going to go to the cool cocoa somebody go to the coast GAM on you're going to have a bad time can have a bad time of the Cocos Cam. You wouldn't have got anywhere. They're playing the benign Britain baseball jeeze. That is fascinating. That was a twist that was the and now I know at Milan means marketing. Yeah, it's a really important in the politics of today. Yeah. I just hadn't heard that abbreviation money lives matter. There is a direct line between the strategy behind the KKK and strategy behind Amway which is the source of the fortune of Betsy DeVos.
