KKK: Film crew exposes the inner workings of hate group that is still alive and well in America's Deep South

In March 2013, about 60 members of the KKK wearing hoods and carrying banners with swastikas descended on downtown Memphis to protest the renaming of Nathan Bedford Forrest Park.

A month earlier, the Memphis City Council voted to change the name of the park honoring the controversial Confederate general and one-time slave trader who went on to became the first Grand Wizard of the KKK.

The move had sparked an outrage among members and supporters of the extremist hate group, who decided to stage a protest against the council's renaming decision.
