White Pride Description
White Pride allows the viewer unprecedented and unique access into two of America’s most notorious extremist communities, the Ku Klux Klan and disparate groups of white nationalists. Anthony Karen’s camera captures not only rare video of a Ku Klux Klan cross lighting ceremony but takes the viewer from demonstrations and secret meetings into the homes and lives of his subjects.
White Pride includes an afterword about Karen’s photography by Ben Cosgrove and an interview with Karen, in which he talks about how he found access to these notorious communities. Though the Ku Klux Klan and white nationalists are separated by history, tradition and culture, they share an ideology of white separatism that has a long history in the United States.
