The Texas Man Who Fought the Klan
Suddenly, a book about another time for our time.
Ten Dollars to Hate: The Texas Man Who Fought the Klan tells the story of the 1920s Ku Klux Klan, the only mass-movement incarnation of the KKK with millions of members across the United States, not just in the Deep South.
Ten Dollars to Hate also celebrates a forgotten hero: Dan Moody was a 29-year old Texas district attorney when he succeeded in convicting klansmen for a brutal assault and getting them serious prison time in a series of tense trials in Georgetown, Texas. He became a national sensation overnight and, a few years later, was elected the youngest governor Texas ever had at the age of 33. There was even talk of running him on a national ticket with Franklin Roosevelt.
