VIII-"My Life With The Klan" - Jerry Thompson - Nashville Tennessean

I Was Living Double Life, But Was I the Only One?

by: Jerry Thompson | publication date: December 14, 1980 | Publication: The Nashville Tennessean |

Suddently on Nov. 30, it dawned on me I might not be the only person leading a double life - belonging to two different Klan factions that were bitter rivals. It was only a week before I was to give up my role as a reporter working undercover in the Klan. Until that day it had never occurred to me that a fellow member of Bill Wilkinson's Invisible Empire of the Ku Klux Klan might be infiltrating Don Black's Knights of the KKK, just as I had done.

In the second to last installment of his series, Thompson reflects of the rivalry between Klan factions, as he spots a member of a rival Klan group at a rally of Don Black's Knights of the KKK. Thompson's entire "My Life with the Klan" series was reprinted by The Tennessean as a separate book with the same title.
