Dinner & A Book - A Fever in the Heartland

Episode #2319 - A Fever in the Heartland
The Roaring Twenties --the Jazz Age -- the height of an American hate group the Ku Klux Klan. Their domain was not the old Confederacy, but the Heartland and Indiana in particular. They hated everyone who was not white and Protestant. The man who set in motion the Klan's takeover of parts of America was a charismatic charlatan named D. C. Stephenson. Within two years of his arrival in Indiana, he'd become the Grand Dragon of the state and the architect of the strategy that brought the group out of the shadows. Gail Martin and guest Todd Cummings talk about “A Fever in the Heartland” by Timothy Egan while making a traditional midwestern Sunday dinner.
