Anti-Klu Klux Klan Broadside: "A Challenge to Negro Citizens"
One-sided anti-Klu Klux Klan broadside written by O. J. Gilmore of Kansas City, Missouri. Gilmore provides an excerpt of a statement by Kansas Governor Henry Justin Allen and an account from the Saturday Evening Post that detail the racism and violence exhibited by the KKK. Gilmore then includes an excerpt of Congressman E. C. Ellis, Republican candidate for Congress, in which Ellis aligns himself with the views of the KKK. Gilmore suggests that "If there is no Republican Party in our midst and what pretends to be is a mere annex of the Klu Klux, then let us vote against them or retrain from voting at all."
