Local History of the KKK Discussed on March 15th
   
Did you know that a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan was active in the North Country during the 1920s? Local KKK members held rallies and cross burnings in many towns and hamlets in St. Lawrence County, where they targeted communities of African-Americans, Jews, and Catholics. Learn more about this dark chapter of our history when Bryan Thompson speaks at the St. Lawrence County Historical Association at noon on Thursday, March 15th. Brown Bag Lunches are free and open to the public. Bring your own lunch and enjoy a beverage and dessert provided by SLCHA.
