Martin Middlewood presents “The Ku Klux Klan in Southwest Washington”

IMG_0859_2_edited-1November 6th at 7:00pm Martin Middlewood discusses “The Ku Klux Klan in Southwest Washington.” He will be exploring the stories and secrets behind the Klan in Clark County during the 1920s. Much of this history is lost or hidden in old newspapers and must be teased out bit by bit. You will learn a secret side of the region’s past you probably didn’t know about.

As freelancer for more than 20 years, Martin Middlewood writes about technology, energy, the environment, and healthcare for newspapers, trade and technology magazines. He’s a board member of the Institute for Science Engineering and Public Policy and a past workshop leader for Write Around Portland. He has a Master’s Degree from Eastern Washington University in Professional and Technical Writing and has done graduate work in American History. He lives in Vancouver.

Be sure to come down and listen to the last First Thursday lecture of the year!
