On this date in 1906, 3,000 Black's demonstrated and rioted in Philadelphia in protest over a theatrical presentation of Thomas Dixon's "The Clansman," which claimed to be the true story of the "Ku Klux Klan Conspiracy."
It was the Klan that overturned Reconstruction. As a result of this protest, 62 blacks were reported lynched.
