Regarding a 1975 campus invitation to former KKK leader David Duke, political science major Andrew Brennen writes “Does Arthur Pope still believe that the KKK have a legitimate claim to first amendment protection when they speak and recruit students at campus sponsored events?” As a long-time member of the ACLU, I certainly believe that they do.

Five of us are UNC alums. Our marketing team was looking into the possibility of buying ad space in the DTH a few days ago as part of an effort to recruit UNC pre-med students for our programs.

In January 1975, a campus organization called the Union Forum used student fees to bring the National Information Director of the KKK to campus. His name was David Duke. Black students at the time were outraged.
