In 1871, three U. S. Congressmen arrived in Reconstruction Era Spartanburg to conduct hearings on KKK violence. Their investigation revealed a post-Civil War social landscape seething with fear, intimidation, class anxiety and racial distrust. Based on the official transcript of those hearings, this play and discussion event is designed to shed light on the social complexities of the past and present.


Created by Anna Abhau Elliott and Directed by Crystal Irby - in collaboration with Speaking Down Barriers.


This program is funded in part by the Chapman Cultural Center, its donors, the County and City of Spartanburg and the South Carolina Arts Commission.
