Short Summary:


The Ku Klux Klan is one of the most notorious organizations in the United States, known for its bigotry, racism and violence. But what is little-known is that there was an organization that was founded to counter the Klan.

The Kounter Klan, formed by Frank W. Boykin (1865-1969) in 1924, consisted of blacks, Jews, Catholics, a few Protestants and other minorities who wanted to retaliate against the KKK.

Boykin, who would go on to become a congressman in Alabama, purchased 800 green robes to outfit his volunteers.

Grace Boykin, Frank's granddaughter, has now compiled many of his stories in The Southern Hunt, a fictionalized account of this extraordinary Southern gentleman.

This book embraces the side of Frank Boykin's life that people never knew about, including his witnessing of warrior Chief Geronimo in shackles and socializing with presidents such as FDR, Truman, Eisenhower and Kennedy, to name a few. Frank was also an avid hunter and sportsman.

This is one man's incredible story . . .
