H.K. is indeed a special man. Once a leader in North Carolina's NAACP, now a conveyor of truth about race relations in the South. He's walked through every Confederate state carrying OUR flag and "preaching" his heritage and history sermons. He is loved and hated. Mostly loved. I've broken bread with him, (got a great photo of him and my wife, both clutching a CBF at the dinner table) listened to his talks, sat privately and spoken at length with him, and even marched beside him as we "flagged" Dupont's Spruance Plant in south Richmond where The Dupont Seven and their many supporters weekly protested their treatment at Dupont as descendants of Confederate soldiers. Dupont's Pruance Plant (where they make Tyvek and Kevlar) sits on land once known as Warwick Landing. It was the beginning of a route into western Virginia that bypassed the ports and docks at Richmond and sent vital goods into what was then The Wilderness. There are Confederate graves on Dupont's property and they have been desecrated by Dupont management. Check out www.dupont7.com
. The hoopla has ended but for several years, every Thursday afternoon, from a few to hundreds of Southern Patriots, picketted Dupont's main gate during afternoon rush hour with every version of Confederate flag you have ever seen. H.K. was one that showed up on occaission to show his support. Many question his motives and his plees for money. But he did what he did out of honor and respect, and out of his own pocket. The SCV in the Richmond area did a lot to help him and I have friends that literally rode "shotgun" in vehicles that shadowed him on his marches. Check out David's link to the Youtube video and then watch some of the others that will display next to it. You've never heard passion until you've heard H.K. Edgerton's rendition of "I AM THEIR FLAG". Enjoy your searches and NEVER forget The Dupont Seven.
