Description: 

Marcia Tompkins returned to her hometown of Tuscaloosa, Alabama in July 1964 and clandestinely recorded this report and actuality of a Ku Klux Klan meeting. Throughout the recording she pauses to describe what she is thinking and feeling during the meeting. This recording was originally broadcast on WBAI on September 1, 1964 and again ca. March 21, 1965 as part of a five-part series entitled "You must go home again or Be it ever so humble, there is no place like Tuscaloosa." (Archive #BB3864, see here). This recording from the Klan meeting became Part 2 of that series. When Tompkins left WBAI in 1965 because of issues at the station, she took all of the tapes from that series with her except for these two.
