FOIA for FBI Files on Lynchings of Blacks & the KKK

Does the Federal Bureau of Investigation have a central file on the lynchings of African Americans, since 1990? What about records on the Ku Klux Klan since 2000?

These questions have been on mind for a year and there's no time like the present to file a FOIA and see what the agency has to say, and what, if any responsive public records are released.

My mantra and default mode of activism under the Trump Administration is the same as it's been for decades: Follow the money. File a FOIA.

Do democracy a huge favor and make a public records request with a government agency. Do it today, please.

Here are the replies from the FBI regarding my requests made this week. More FOIAs to come.
