Jack And Rosie Riddle

Jack and Rosie Riddle were photographed in 1948 accepting a radio from a group of Ku Klux Klan members.

A 1948 photo showing the Ku Klux Klan’s “charity” demonstration for an elderly black couple in Alabama continues to circulate on the Internet, although the details behind the actual encounter are scarce.

In the photo, 106-year-old Jack Riddle and his wife Rosie, both ex-slaves, sit in front of a group of Klansmen (including one dressed up as Santa Claus), while the group is reportedly given a radio to the couple.
