Top Stories: KKK Alive in the Free State, ‘Madre Luz’ Toppled in Wyman Park Dell, Quality Spots to Catch the Eclipse

Our most popular read this week was actually from April 2016, but who’s counting? Given the recent national tensions stemming from the deadly, hate-fueled violence in Charlottesville, Va., on Aug. 12, we decided to re-publish Rachel Monroe’s post, “The Ku Klux Klan Is Apparently Still Alive and Well in Maryland.” It’s true: the KKK is still very much alive.
