Klan on Trial

Klan on Trial

In 1923, at the height of the Ku Klux Klan's power in America, a 27-year old district attorney named Dan Moody sought to do that which had never been done - convict the KKK for its violent crimes and send its members to prison. The previous spring on Easter Sunday, the KKK of Williamson County Texas accused a traveling salesman of having an improper affair with a local widow. When he refused to leave town, they beat him to within inches of his life and left him for dead. This act of moral aggression, set up one of the most famous trials in Texas history pitting the very rule-of-law against vigilante justice and seeking to finally hold the KKK accountable for its crimes. This is the story of that trial, the courtroom where it happened, and the man willing to stand up for justice.
