Some dangled knotted nooses, silent threat of lynching, from their car windows. The paraders dropped crimson-lettered cards reading: 'Respectable Negro citizens not voting tomorrow'."
"When the votes were cast next day, Miami had a striking object lesson in the efficacy of Klan tactics - the Negro vote was five times larger than any in the city's history."
