Jimmy Simmons, president of the Casper, Wyoming, NAACP, and John Abarr, a KKK organizer from Great Falls, Montana, met on Aug. 31 at a hotel in Casper to "open a dialogue." Abarr later paid $30 to join the NAACP and made an additional $20 donation. Simmons won't be joining the KKK, however. "You have to be white to join the Klan," Abarr said.
