Wayne Greenhaw, a long-time Southern journalist provides a good overview of the Klan in Alabama. Sure, the stars of the civil rights movement are given their due, but what makes this book so interesting are the stories of ordinary men and women who stood up to the violent racists and small minded bigots. Fighting the Devil in Dixie is both uplifting and depressing in equal measures, and an excellent reminder of the not so distant past.
