Sam leaps into Clyde just as he is being initiated into the Klu Klux Klan. The head of the local clan chapter is Clyde's father-in-law and he's the head of the 'hunting club', as it's publicly referred to, to please his wife as much as anything. Al tells Sam that he's there to save Nathaniel Simpson, who happens to be the son of Clyde's maid, Ada. Nathaniel is active in getting African-Americans registered for the upcoming election but in 1965, the KKK has no qualms about shutting up what they see as troublemakers - permanently. Sam is disgusted with the whole thing and is prepared to put his life on the line to support Nathaniel. Written by garykmcd
