During the 1920s, the Ku Klux Klan numbered in the millions and had infiltrated both politics and law enforcement, making it a catch-22 for anybody trying to right their horrific wrongs. One courageous man — a 29-year-old Texas district attorney — demonstrated that Klansmen could, in fact, be punished for taking the law into their own hands. Dan Moody convicted and won significant prison time for five Klansmen during a tense 1923 courtroom battle in Georgetown, Texas; that early triumph made headline news and Moody went on to become the youngest governor of Texas at the age of 33. Houston author Patricia Bernstein documented this brutal chapter in America's history, and will be on hand to discuss and sign copies of her book at Brazos Bookstore.
