Summary "In 1925, the true nature of the Ku Klux Klan was exposed by one woman. This is her story. The members of the Ku Klux Klan once called themselves the knights of the Invisible Empire--an empire that controlled local, state, and federal governments across the United States. The most powerful politicians in the country belonged to the Klan. In 1924, the KKK's Grand Dragon of Indiana, D.C. Stephenson, even famously declared, "I am the law in Indiana." The Invisible Empire tells the frightening story of the Klan's rise to power in the 1920s, its ruthless agenda of hate, violence, and corruption--and how everything changed when one woman, Madge Oberholtzer, testified against Stephenson. With her dying breath, Madge exposed the true nature of the Klan and changed the way Americans would see the KKK forever. Madge's story--the cruelty she suffered and the courage she harnessed--is just as powerful and relevant a century later as it was in 1925. Because Madge's name has been largely lost to history, The Invisible Empire is a reminder to new generations of her tragic sacrifice, aiming to keep Madge's memory alive in a new era."--Page 4 of cover
