JACKSONVILLE, Fla.—A Southern Civil Rights activist – supporting the rights of the South – was protested Monday by the KKK in downtown Jacksonville.
H.K. Edgerton, a black man, was paying his respects at the Hemming Park Confederate Monument Monday morning when he was confronted by members of the KKK.
Multiple witnesses of many colors came to his defense.
Edgerton’s organization told First Coast News they’re not sure why the KKK protested his appearance at the monument. He’s traveling through Florida because he wants to stop others from arguing the Confederate flag is a symbol of racism.
