SLU prof to talk about KKK

HAMMOND, La. — Southeastern Louisiana University historian Samuel Hyde Jr. discusses the history of the Ku Klux Klan in the Lower Mississippi Valley for an episode of the "Fatal Encounters" program on the Discovery Channel.

The program is set to air Feb. 10.

Hyde, the university's Leon C. Ford Endowed Chair of Regional Studies, is interviewed in the program titled "White Hot Rage."

The episode centers on the case of Cynthia Lynch, who came to Louisiana several years ago to join a klan group based in Washington and St. Tammany parishes. She was killed during her initiation into the group in the Pearl River swamp.
