History’s Peter Shulman comments on inaccurate tweet claiming KKK at 1924 DNC

No, Dinesh D’Souza, that photo isn’t the KKK marching to the Democratic National Convention

The Washington PostPeter Shulman, associate professor of history, weighed in on the inaccuracy of conservative author Dinesh D’Souza’s tweet claiming that a picture of KKK members were marching at the 1924 Democratic National Convention. Instead, Shulman explained, the picture was of KKK members marching to the 1924 funeral of a police officer in Madison, Wisconsin.
