Ann Arbor Area Community News
A KKK robe, displayed in a Howell auction house’s front display window and originally slated for auction as historical memorabilia on 17 January (Martin Luther King Jr. Day) was removed from the window, and the auction date pushed back, after objections from the community.
The Detroit News reports that Howell’s city officials have decided to purchase the robe and destroy it,
“We need to make this point for our city,” Howell Mayor Gerri Moen said.
Donations for this purpose are being accepted by the Howell Chamber of Commerce at (517) 546-3920.
