Today we have some concerns about domestic terrorism, but we are not the first generation to have that concern. The Ku Klux Klan originated after the Civil War, but is still in existence today.
At the July meeting of the Retired Men's Luncheon Group of Pleasant Hills, Elaine Parsons, Associate Professor of History at Duquesne University, will discuss the origin and characteristics of the Ku Klux Klan. Professor Parsons is also the author of books and articles on American History including The Ku-Klux Klan and The Reconstruction of American Culture, to be published next year.
The meeting will be held at noon on Thursday, July 17 in the Fellowship Hall of the Pleasant Hills Community Presbyterian Church, located at the corner of Old Clairton Road and Audrey Drive in Pleasant Hills.
Cost for the lunch is $7.
For additional information, or to indicate your intention to attend, call the office of the Pleasant Hills Community Presbyterian Church at 412-655-2000. Please call by Friday, July 11 to be included in the lunch order.
