The Truth About Margaret Sanger
"I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan...I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses...I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak...In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered." (Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366)

Noted author answers: "Why would the KKK invite Margaret Sanger?" Calls for removal from Smithsonian
Great article by Paul Bremmer at WND. He interviews noted author Paul Kengor who nails the liberal establishment on their ability to ignore Margaret Sanger's self-confessed mutual admiration society with the KKK. Bremmer also reports on the growing movement among black clergymen and scholars in general to throw the Planned Parenthood foundress out of the Smithsonian Institute. "This fact was not lost on a group of 10 black clergymen who now have sent a letter to the director of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery requesting that a bust of Sanger be removed from the museum’s “Struggle for Justice” exhibit." By Paul Bremmer
It may be uncomfortable for fans of Planned Parenthood, but it’s true – Margaret Sanger, the legendary birth control activist, was a racial eugenicist who once spoke before the Ku Klux Klan.
The evidence is right there in her own memoir, according to Paul Kengor.
In an interview with WND, Kengor recounted Sanger’s KKK experience as documented in her memoir.
“She describes the white hoods that come through, the flaming crosses that come through,” Kengor recalled. “Then she gets up and speaks, and she spoke for so long and was such a hit that she didn’t get finished until late at night. She also said a whole bunch of additional offers to speak were proffered by her enthusiastic audience, and she finished so late that she missed the train to go back to New York. She had to spend the night there.
“And people might wonder, why would the KKK invite Margaret Sanger? Because Margaret Sanger was a racial eugenicist. She spoke openly of race improvement.”
This fact was not lost on a group of 10 black clergymen who now have sent a letter to the director of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery requesting that a bust of Sanger be removed from the museum’s “Struggle for Justice” exhibit.
