Legacy . . .

An inheritance from previous generations

This web site explores two legacies from Indiana history. The first is a legacy of intolerance, highlighted by the Ku Klux Klan’s powerful presence during the 1920’s. The acts of hate that continue to occur across Indiana bear witness to this painful legacy. 

There also is a second, more important legacy at hand - - a desire to combat intolerance. This desire is apparent in countless efforts to promote unity in Hoosier communities. This web site raises awareness of the intolerance in our midst and offers resources that can be used to advance the acceptance of difference.
