Dallas Historical Society will present an evening with Patricia Bernstein as she discusses her book, Ten Dollars to Hate: The Texas Man Who Fought the Klan.

Bernstein will discuss the legacy of Dan Moody, a 29-year-old district attorney who put several Klansmen on trial in Georgetown, and went on to become the state’s youngest attorney general and governor. Bernstein argues that the trials were the beginning of the end of the Second Klan in Texas. This talk will specifically focus on the history of the Klan in Dallas and local individuals and institutions, like The Dallas Morning News, who fought it at its height of power and influence in the early 1920s. A corresponding pop up exhibit will display artifacts from the DHS collection that relate to the Klan in Dallas.
