19 Aug 1980, New York State, USA --- Original caption: David Duke, the Ku Klux Klan's Grand Wizard, who stepped down because of the KKK's "bad reputation," talks to reporters after he took over on August 19th, as President of the newly formed National Association For the Advancement of White People. "I just found I was beating my head against the wall," said Duke, 30, of New Orleans. "I became very tired of fighting the Hollywood-sterotyped image of the Klan and the Klansmen." --- Image by © Bettmann/CORBIS Bettmann/CORBIS
