KLANSVILLE, U.S.A | AndersonVision
Tapping into the fears and resentments of low-income whites who believed that a changing America would leave them behind, Jones took his message across the state. In just three years, he grew the North Carolina Klan from a handful of friends to some 10,000 members--more than the Klans of all other southern states combined. In the process, Jones helped give the Tarheel State a new nickname: "Klansville, U.S.A."
