The Ku Klux Klan was reborn in the late 1910s, flourished, but began to decline in the mid 1920s. It never completely disappeared, however. This token from about 1930 commemorates the visit of the Klan's Imperial Wizard to California. The innocuous phrases and symbols belie the hatred, vigilantism, and violence found under the hood of the Klan.
