The organization focused on legal strategies designed to confront the critical civil rights issues of the day - which included lynching and segregation in schools.

1915 - This person was just 6 years old when The Birth of a Nation opened in February. A silent film, it was the most ambitious film to date and is considered a classic.

The KKK was shown as "a heroic force".

Elvis scandalized adults and thrilled teens.

1980 - At the age of 71 years old, Vivian was alive when on April 24th, a rescue attempt was begun in the Iranian Hostage Crisis. The attempt failed and 8 US servicemen were killed.

Upon leaving, a helicopter collided with a transport plane and the men were killed.
