Mayor Thomas M. Menino presents Xernona and the Grand Dragon X
February 21, 2013
A play written and directed by Jacqui Parker celebrating Black History Month
A true story about an unlikely friendship in the 1960's between Civil Rights Icon Xernona Clayton and the state of Georgia's Ku Klux Klan "Grand Dragon", Calvin Craig. They built an unusual relationship based on daily debates about their differing views on race and society. Surprising everyone, Craig resigned from the Klan in 1968, denouncing the organization and crediting Clayton for his conversion.
