feb 8, 1915 - Birth of a Nation Film created by D.W. Griffith and seized by Supremacists

Description:

"White supremacists seized upon it (and emerging film technology) when it was released. At the film’s premiere, members of the Klan paraded outside the theatre, celebrating its depiction of their group’s rise as a sign of southern White society’s recovery from the humiliation of defeat in the Civil War.
