Watch the full-length episode at (US Only) “Klansville U.S.A.” premieres January 13, 2015 on PBS American Experience. As the civil rights movement grew in the 1960s, the long-dormant Ku Klux Klan reemerged with a vengeance. North Carolina, long seen as the most progressive southern state, saw a boom in Klan membership under the leadership of Grand Dragon Bob Jones. In just three years, the North Carolina Klan grew to some 10,000 members, helping give the state a new nickname: “Klansville, USA.”
