A photo taken at a 1924 Ku Klux Klan rally has been stripped of its blue ribbon at an Ohio county fair after a complaint that it was offensive.
The photo won first place in an antique photo category at the Greene County Fair in Xenia. It depicts robed and unrobed KKK members kneeling in a circle at a Dayton rally in September 1924. Burning crosses are visible in the background.
The Dayton Daily News reports that the photo was stripped of its ribbon and removed from the fairgrounds Tuesday.
Early voting begins today for the May 7th special election that includes run-off votes for Dayton mayor and city commission, and levy proposals for area schools, police, fire and other services for more than 20 communities in the region.
Llyn McCoy, Deputy Director of the Greene County Board of Elections, says residents can still register to vote in the election if they have not done so.
