Klan - NAACP Meeting

The leadership of the NAACP Casper branch speak with John Abarr, center, a kleagle of the United Klans of America out of Great Falls, Mont., on Saturday night, Aug. 31, 2013 at the Parkway Plaza hotel in Casper. Jimmy Simmons, president of the NAACP Casper branch, spent several months attempting to organize the meeting due to concerns about reports of violence against black men and Ku Klux Klan pamphleting in Gillette. The gathering, which took place in private under heavy security, was the first formal meeting between Klan and NAACP representatives that either side was aware of. (Alan Rogers, Star-Tribune)
