Scope/Content: Title from spine. Technique: Artist's book consisting of 3 sets of prints housed in a linen-covered clamshell box divided into three compartments. The forty-two print elements can be pieced together to form fourteen prints, which measure 10" x 14" each. Printed on the verso of each print are excerpts "from a manuscript that the artist discovered while in residency at the American Antiquarian Society in the fall of 2000. The handwritten pages, which numbered over three hundred in length, comprised the transcript for a series of congressional hearings held in 1871. The purpose of the hearings was to gain information about the activities of the group known at that time as the Ku Klux, a widespread organization that was responsible for a virtual reign of terror throughout the south in the decades following the civil war. The transcripts bear witness not only to the horrific acts of the KK, but also to the way in which they divided a community along racial lines by targeting anyone who resisted their vision of racial separation and white supremacy"--Colophon. Technique: "To produce the printed pieces, multiple layers of text and imagery were hand silkscreened onto sheets of Arches Cover, then hand-colored. The images used for the prints are period photographs and engravings collected by the artist"--Colophon. Scope/Content: Limited edition of 40 copies.
