In this week’s TBR Radio Presents: The Dixie Heritage Hour, Dr. Ed calls Confederate heritage activist and Southern Legal Resource Center (SLRC) board member H. K. Edgerton.
H. K. Talks about his rise to the presidency of the N.A.A.C.P. and how, in the
H.K. then tells how he met attorney Kirk D. Lyons, chief legal counsel for the SLRC. While
Yes, the N.A.A.C.P. used to help not only
H.K. And Lyons maintained a friendship and, at the time of his ouster from the N.A.A.C.P., Lyons offered H.K. a position on the SLRC’s board. Eventually, H.K. would find himself working full-time in defense of Southern and Confederate heritage.
H.K. also explains why educated blacks do not accept the “Lincoln myth,” why Fredrick Douglas was NOT a hero to black people and was actually a traitor to his race, the historically unprecedented brutality of the Union Army towards blacks, and why his black ancestors fought for the
H.K.’s grandmother may have been the only black woman to have received a Confederate State Funeral.
Toward the end of the call, H.K. tells Dr. Ed what it was like for him, as a black child, to grow up in the “Jim Crow” south and some of the jobs he had as young man.
As Caddymaster for a prominent North Carolina country club he caddied for several celebrities. He tells of the conversations that he had as a regular caddy for the Rev. Dr. Billy Graham with whom he maintained a life-long friendship.
Of course, many of our listeners will know H.K. best for his confrontations with Gov. Nikki Haley, the vigils that he keeps in Confederate uniform at the base of Southern monuments, or for his famous Virginia to Texas “March Across Dixie.” These too are topics of discussion in this week’s TBR Radio Presents: The Dixie Heritage Hour.
