The Infamous Halloween Picture of 1977
The Infamous Halloween Picture of 1977
The infamous BSU Halloween yearbook photo in 1977 was very controversial on campus. “The Klu Klux Klan was a very visible force in Idaho at the time and this was the first time that many of us had been exposed to the KKK in a real sense. Much in the way that African American kids use the ‘n’ word to diffuse the power that it has historically held, I remember that Stephan (Wilson) held the noose to show something scarier than a white man holding a noose- a black man holding one in Spokane.” (April Grayson in an email, 2002).
