Teaching Rebirth of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK)

Rebirth of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK)

The 1920s brought big changes to the American way of life. Women were living less restricted lives. Radio and television transformed how Americans spent their free time. A new wave of immigration brought in large numbers of immigrants from Eastern Europe and Latin America, and many African Americans were moving north, bringing with them a new sense of pride in their race. However, many white people were not comfortable with these changes. and the Klu Klux Klan saw a dramatic rise in popularity during this time.
