I lived in a pretty rural community when I was growing up, and every quarter or so, the Klan would come by and leave a magazine or some propaganda letting you know, the Klan is here, how to join, and I can even remember when I was small they would do marches and stuff like that in Charleston, and I think it was probably my earliest memory. And, I actually didn’t realize that they would come by and drop off the magazine, my dad told me years later that they used to do that. And I was shocked, I mean this must have been in the early 90’s, that the Klan was still, that prevalent, to come by and drop off literature to people’s houses. They would come at night and drop it off in your driveway. They would advertise that they were still prevalent and they would actually have marches in Charleston when I was little
