The Web 1925 "Southwest Virginia Club"

Description

On this two page spread for the Southwest Virginia Club at Richmond College, a collage of photographs on page 233 picturing students engaging in activities such as playing instruments and playing sports. On the third row in the far left photo, there is a photo of an individual dressed in a Ku Klux Klan robe. KKK members use the robe to hide their identities and to give an intimidating appearance as they are known for being domestic terrorists. The Ku Klux Klan is a white supremacist organization that is known for lynching and terrorizing African Americans. There was a Ku Klux Klan parade held within the city of Richmond in 1925, the same year this photograph was published in the yearbook.
